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.
