TCAP scores show student achievement down in 2014

DENVER - The results of the latest statewide testing were presented to the Colorado State Board of Education on Thursday and the news wasn't good.

According to the Colorado Department of Education, across all grades, all content areas had a decrease in the percentage of students scoring Proficient or Advanced compared to 2013.

Officials also said fewer students made adequate growth this year compared to last year.

More than 500,000 students in Colorado took the TCAP (Transitional Colorado Assessment Program) tests in 2014.

TCAP tests replaced the Colorado Student Assessment Program (CSAP) in 2012. TCAP tests students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, writing and mathematics.
