TCAP scores are in for Tennessee school districts. Look up how your district did.

Most Tennessee school systems increased their students’ proficiency rates in math and English language arts last school year, according to district-level test scores released Tuesday by the state.

The latest scores generally mirrored statewide data released last month that showed gains across all core subjects and grades, even exceeding pre-pandemic proficiency rates in English language arts and social studies.

But large learning gaps remain, especially for historically underserved students including children with disabilities, those from low-income families, and students of color.

The results are an important marker as school systems work to recover from steep learning losses in 2021, when the first test scores from the pandemic period declined dramatically across Tennessee and the rest of the nation.

The scores also give a localized snapshot of how school districts are doing with tutoring, summer school, and other programs designed to accelerate learning after the pandemic.

Below, you can look up how your school district performed in English language arts and math in 2022-23 under the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program, or TCAP.

You also can delve further into local results, including scores in science and social studies, via Tennessee’s new online dashboard on its State Report Card.
