The following documents are available for review from TDOE and provide valuable information about Student Assessment in Tennessee.
The Department of Research, Evaluation, and Assessment (REA) is a multi-faceted team that serves the district within the Office of Accountability. The REA department is comprised of the Supervisor of Research and Evaluation, the Supervisor of Assessment, a senior data analyst, a data analyst, and two accountability specialists. The department is responsible for state accountability measures, administration of all district-wide assessments, program evaluation, researching curricular data, communicating data to appropriate stakeholders across the district, and providing its analytical expertise to assist school leaders in making student-centered, data-driven decisions. In addition to these responsibilities, the REA team also serves as the gateway for external organizations requesting access to data from the Knox County Schools to include in third-party research.
