TISD: TAKS Improvements And Declines

TAKS scores are in.

Tyler ISD saw improvements overall this year, but declines in some areas.

The biggest improvements: The number of 5th grade students passing the Science exam went up by 15 percentage points from last year. The 5th graders also did better in Reading, improving by 11 percentage points.

The biggest declines were in English and Math. Tenth graders passing the English exam went down by 8 percentage points, while the district saw a 4-percentage point drop in 3rd grade Math.

Compared to the rest of the state, TISD did better overall at the elementary school level, but not as well at the middle and high school levels.
