Eighth Grade Math refers to the percentage of students who scored in levels 3 and 4 as well as the count of students that passed during a different test administration. These scores are acquired by the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) which is the standard testing assessment for all Washington Public Schools. Before 2023, the metric was the percentage of students who earned a “C” or better in Algebra or Geometry.
While we have aggregated grade data going back to 2011, we started receiving student-level data from Tacoma Public Schools in 2015. Our dashboard, therefore, only tracks grade-related indicators back to 2015. For 2023, we changed our data source from TPS to OSPI to present county wide results.
Rates based on fewer than 10 students (n<10) are suppressed to protect student privacy.
