Student Achievement
Littleton Public Schools is committed to increasing achievement levels for every student.  
 
Littleton Public Schools earned "Accredited with Distinction" for the last five consecutive years. Students in Littleton Public Schools continue to achieve at high levels. Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) performance highlights from the 20132014 school year include:
 

LPS grades 3 through 8 scored at or above 80 percent proficient and advanced in reading for the third year in a row and exceed the state average by as much as 16 percentage points.

§  Grades 3 through 9 outperformed the state average by double digits.

§  Grades 4 through 8 scores are at all-time highs.

§  5th and 6th grade scores matched last year’s all-time highs.

 LPS writing scores remain strong with all grades tested outperforming the state average by double digits for the second year in a row and by as much as 18 percentage points.

§  Grades 4, 7, and 8 scores are at all-time highs.

§  4th grade scores are 18 percentage points proficient and advanced above the state average; 5th grade scores are 17 percentage points proficient and advanced above the state average.

§  District writing scores overall continue to be much higher than the state average, but the results have been inconsistent over the years. LPS looks forward to a new state writing assessment that will be aligned to the new expectations of the Colorado Academic Standards.

 LPS math scores are the highest ever in some areas.

§  District math scores remained high and showed improvement at many grade levels.

§  8th grade scores improved by 6 percentage points proficient and advanced from last year.

§  Grades 4, 7, and 8 scores are at all-time highs.

§  Grades 7 and 8 scores are 20 percentage points above the state average proficient and advanced.

§  All grades tested are above the state average.

§  3rd grade math scores remained high during the district’s transition to the new Colorado State Standards even though the TCAP test is not aligned to these new state standards.

 LPS students demonstrate growth in reading, writing and math.  Students at several LPS schools are demonstrating more growth than their academic peers across the state.

 Growth in Reading
All LPS schools exceeded the state’s Adequate Growth targets. Five LPS schools had median growth in reading above the 60th percentile –Franklin, Runyon, Sandburg, Wilder, and Littleton Academy Middle School.

 Growth in Writing
18 of 24 LPS schools were above the 50th percentile growth in writing, which indicates that LPS students are growing more than their academic peers.  Seven LPS schools had median growth above the 60th percentile – Franklin, Peabody, Runyon, Sandburg, Twain, Wilder, and Littleton Academy Middle School.

 Growth in Math
21 of 24 LPS schools were above the 50th percentile growth in math, which indicates that LPS students are growing more than their academic peers.  Seven LPS schools had median growth above the 60th percentile – Franklin, Lenski, Littleton Prep, Peabody, Runyon, Littleton Prep. Middle School, and Newton.

 The Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) is designed to bridge the assessment on the former Colorado State Standards to the new Colorado State Standards. TCAP is one of several assessments LPS uses to measure student progress. As a district, LPS has an achievement goal that states, “90 percent of all students K-10 will be on or above grade level in reading, math, writing, and science. The achievement gap in student performance will be cut in half. Students not at grade level will exhibit catch-up growth. All students will achieve at high levels.” TCAP, along with other assessments like Measures of Academic Progress (MAP), as well as classroom grades, are used to determine grade-level performance.

 Colorado’s state assessments are changing in order to accurately assess student mastery of the updated Colorado Academic Standards. With the standards being more focused, coherent and rigorous, assessments must adapt to align with the standards. The TCAP is being replaced by Colorado’s new assessment system, the Colorado Measures of Academic Success. CMAS incorporates new science and social studies assessments developed by Colorado and new English language arts and mathematics assessments developed by the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC).  It is required that all Colorado school districts give these new assessments beginning in the 2014-2015 school year.
