TDOE Encourages Families to Engage with Student Scores on TCAP Family Portal

As we begin the 2023-24 school year, the Tennessee Department of Education is encouraging all parents and families of students who took the TCAP in grades 3-8 and students who took end-of-course assessments to log in to the TCAP Family Portal for on-demand access to their student’s assessment results and more. The TCAP Family Portal is one of the department’s many free resources that provides districts, schools, families, legislators, and local communities with the tools to give students the best education and opportunities in the classroom and beyond.   

Utilized by families across the state, the platform has been accessed by over 78,000 unique users since it was launched in January 2020. User engagement with the portal during back-to-school time increased over 40% between 2022 and 2023. Parents and families can watch this short video or reference this graphic to access the TCAP Family Portal.

Additionally, on Tuesday, July 18th, the department released the 2023 district-level TCAP data. Like the state-level TCAP data, district-level assessment data is available on the new and improved dashboard housed on the State Report Card. Users can access the dashboard by visiting the public report card site, clicking on the district finder tab, selecting a district, and selecting the “2023 District Assessment” tab. 

This lifted the embargo for all district-level TCAP data for all grades and subjects. Accountability and school-level data will remain under embargo until the release of the updated State Report Card this fall.
