NASHVILLE (AP) – The latest data shows Tennessee students made gains in the majority of the state's 31 grade and subject-level tests.

Gov. Bill Haslam and Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman announced Tuesday that the biggest increases seen in the 2013-2014 Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program results were in high school, where students made gains on five of seven high school tests.

TCAP scores are used in the calculation of final grades for students primarily in grades 3 through 8.

According to the results, student scores held steady in those grades, with slight gains in most areas.

The one area where improvement continues to be needed is in reading. Students this year were 49.5 percent proficient, compared to 50.3 percent last year.
