TCAP Status Results:
BACKGROUND INFORMATION:
 
The Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) was administered for the first time in 2012. TCAP supportsthe transition from the Colorado Model Content Standards to the Colorado Academic Standards in grades 3 through10 in the content areas of reading, writing and mathematics and in grades 5, 8 and 10 for science.
 
1,683,018 tests were administered to about 499,800 Colorado students in 2013.
 
The tests require six to 12 hours to complete. The tests provide the state, districts, schools, teachers, parents andstudents with valuable student achievement data in what amounts to less than one percent of the total instructionaltime in an academic year.
SUMMARY OF FINDINGS:Since 2008, state results have remained relatively steady in all content areas
 In all content areas the percentage ofstudents scoring proficient andadvanced remained relatively steadysince 2008. Science scores showedthe largest gain with an increase of4.6 percentage points. Writingshowed the smallest gain with anincrease of 1.7 percentage points.

Slight narrowing of the achievement gap for key subgroups, but there are still persistent gaps.
 
Minority Subgroup ProgressAchievement
For students scoring proficient andadvanced since 2008:
 
Hispanic subgroup gains areat a higher rate than whitesubgroup gains in all contentareas.
 
Black subgroup gains are at ahigher rate than whitesubgroup gains in writingand science.
 
However, the 2013 gap is stillsignificant for both groups.
 English Language Learner SubgroupProgress
For students scoring proficient andadvanced since 2008, EnglishLanguage Learner (ELL) subgroupgains are at a higher rate than non-ELL subgroup gains in reading,writing and science. However, the2013 gap is still significant.
 Low Income Subgroup Progress
For students scoring proficient andadvanced since 2008, low incomesubgroup gains are at a higher ratethan non-low income student gains inreading, writing and science.However, the 2013 gap is stillsignificant for all content areas.

Growth Results:
BACKGROUND INFORMATION:
Colorado Growth Model results provide information about:
 
How much students grew relative to their academic peers
 
If that growth was enough (adequate) to reach or maintain proficiencyAdditional information about the Colorado Growth Model can be found on SchoolView
(
http://www.schoolview.org/ColoradoGrowthModel2.asp)
 
What is adequate growth?
 
Catch-Up Growth:
 
Previously non-proficient students who made enough growth to be Proficient or Advanced within the next 3 years or by 10
th
grade.
Keep-Up Growth:
 
Previously proficient or advanced students who made enoughgrowth to remain in the proficient category in each of the nextthree years or by 10
th
grade.
SUMMARY OF FINDINGS:A larger percentage of students who were already proficient made enough growth to stayproficient in 2013 compared to 2012.
 
In reading, 81.5 percent ofproficient and advanced studentsmade enough growth to maintainproficiency for the next three years(or until 10
th
-grade). Thisrepresents a slight .4 percentincrease from 2011-12 school year.The percentage is 74.2 percent inwriting, an increase of 3.7 percent.While 63.4 percent made keep-upgrowth in math, which representsan increase of 2.5 percent.
 
Percent of Students Making Keep-Up Growth by Subject
Growth needs to be accelerated for non-proficient students.
 
Only 32.1 percent of non-proficientstudents made enough growth inreading to “catch-up” within threeyears or by 10th-grade. Thisrepresents a slight decline of .5percent from the previous schoolyear. Meanwhile 27.8 percent ofnon-proficient students madecatch-up growth in writing (anincrease of 3.1 percent) and 12.4percent in math (a slight increase of.3 percent).
