NEWPORT-When the students at Northwest Elementary came out of the cellar in regards to their performance levels on state-mandated tests, they did so with flair and style, achieving a Level 5 status, the highest possible, in both SAT 10, a test administered to students in grades K-2, and in TCAP (Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program), the tests given to students in grades 3-8.

In doing so, the students leaped from last year's performance at Level 1, the lowest possible.

Statewide test results were released Monday, and, like most districts, Cocke County schools showed mixed results.

"These tests are designed to show how much students improve from year to year," said Ginger Atkins, Cocke County Schools Instructional Supervisor, on Tuesday afternoon.
