IOWA Standardized Testing Results: Spring Summative Standardized IOWA testing results are proving TKA Elementary to be one of the top in the nation academically. In elementary, we set a goal to strive for National Blue Ribbon (NBR) Status meaning to be at the top 85% or higher in the nation. We achieved and exceeded the NBR cut scores in many areas throughout elementary. In areas that we didn’t quite reach NBR status, we still achieved top recognition in the nation reaching 80th percentile or higher in Reading/Language Arts and Math. This speaks volumes of the level of education being delivered at TKA.
3rd grade CAPE National Blue Ribbon Cut Scores: Reading and Language Arts (RLA) 198 and TKA surpassed this at 204.3/199.1 and English and Language Arts (ELA) 206.2/206.6. 3rd grade math CNBR cut score 196 and TKA surpassed this at 198.6/203.6 meaning we met the 85th or higher percentile in the nation for 3rd grade.
4th grade CAPE National Blue Ribbon Cut Scores: RLA 215 and TKA met the benchmark for ELA 215 and Reading just below at 209.6. Math CNBR 215 and TKA scored 209.8 which doesn’t hit the National 85th percentile for National Blue Ribbon, but we are at 80th percentile in the nation.
5th grade CAPE National Blue Ribbon Cut Scores: RLA 229 and TKA met the benchmark for ELA at 232.2 and close on Reading at 228.8. CNBR Math 231 and TKA were very close at 229.2 meaning we are higher than 80th percentile in the nation.
