TVAAS Composites

The Tennessee Value-Added Assessment System (TVAAS) measures the impact schools and teachers have on their students' academic progress. TVAAS measures student growth, not whether the student is proficient on the state assessment. TVAAS composites are scores that assess growth at the school level, based on student performance across all available subject and grades on state assessments. For districts that opted to test students in grades K-2 when the K-2 assessment was available, those scores are also included in the TVAAS composite.

TVAAS composites are reported on a 1-5 scale and are one-year scores. Overall, TVAAS composite includes all available data from the K-2 assessment (SAT-10) and all applicable TCAP and EOC tests. The TVAAS literacy composite includes all literacy-focused tests included in the overall TVAAS composite. The TVAAS numeracy composite includes all numeracy-focused tests included in the overall TVAAS composite. Similarly, the science composites include all science-related tests and the social studies composites (first available in 2016) include all social studies tests. Please note that all 2016 TVAAS composites only include data from EOC assessments and, where applicable, data from the optional K-2 assessment.

Rules for Effectiveness Level Determination

Level 5, Most Effective: Significant evidence that the school's students made more progress than the Growth Standard (the school's index is 2 or greater).

Level 4, Above Average Effectiveness: Moderate evidence that the school's students made more progress than the Growth Standard (the school's index is between 1 and 2).

Level 3, Average Effectiveness: Evidence that the school's students made progress similar to the Growth Standard (the school's index is between -1 and 1).

Level 2, Approaching Average Effectiveness: Moderate evidence that the school's students made less progress than the Growth Standard (the school's index is between -2 and -1).

Level 1, Least Effective: Significant evidence that the school's students made less progress than the Growth Standard (the school's index is less than -2).

Note: When an index falls exactly on the boundary between two numbers, the higher growth level is assigned.

ACT Data Updated 2/8/17

Starting with the 2015-16 data files, schools’ and districts’ average scores and percentages are calculated using the highest scores students earn in the three years preceding their graduation only for those students who are counted as graduates for a given school or district, depending on the file. Please note that in prior years the data reflected the most recent scores for students who were expected to graduate in a given year whether they graduated that year or not.

Aggregate Accountability File Updated 12/13/16

The accountability files provide student counts and proficiency-level breakdowns at the school, district, and state levels for subjects using in accountability determinations. Grades and subjects are combined according to accountability business rules to arrive at the totals in these files. Results are suppressed where the number of valid test scores is less than ten (this is denoted by a single asterisk *). In these files, suppression also occurs where any individual proficiency level is less than 1% or greater than 99% at the state and district level, or less than 5% or greater than 95% at the school level (this is denoted by two asterisks**). Please note that due to the suspension of testing in grade 3–8 that no accountability determinations were made for the 2015–16 school year.

Base Accountability File Updated 12/13/16

The base accountability files include data at the subject and grade level for each of the following End-of-Course tests: Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II, Integrate Math I, Integrated Math II, Integrated Math III, Biology I, Chemistry, English I, English II, English III, and US History. Data are included both for all students and by demographic groups. These files include the number enrolled, the number of valid scores, and the number and percent of students scoring at each performance level. Results are suppressed where the number of valid test scores is less than ten (this is denoted by a single asterisk *). In these files, suppression also occurs where any individual proficiency level is less than 1% or greater than 99% at the state and district level, or less than 5% or greater than 95% at the school level (this is denoted by two asterisks**). Please note that due to the suspension of testing in grade 3–8 that no accountability determinations were made for the 2015–16 school year.
