Data Source

The TCAP scores and the number of valid tests by school district were collected from the Tennessee Department of Education. Kids count division of the Tennessee Commission on Children and Youth converted district level data to county level using basic statistical methods.

State special schools are not included in county level data but included in state level data. From 2016-17 the TCAP tests were replaced by TNReady tests.
Due to the suspension of testing in grade 3-8 no accountability determinations were made for 2015-16
