TCAP has been the state's testing program since 1988, and it includes TNReady, the state's assessments in math, English language arts, social studies, and science. As the state has transitioned to higher academic standards over the past several years, and will continue to do so, our tests have become better aligned to what educators are teaching. The assessments now include rigorous questions that measure students' writing, critical thinking, and problem solving skills.
Updated materials for educators are available to support superintendents, principals, teachers, and test coordinators. This includes:
- Information about general test topics like timing, logistics, administration, and results, including scoring
- Communications resources to share with families
- Blueprints that outline exactly what content will be assessed
- Accommodations and accessibility resources for all students and for those with disabilities
- Options for English Learners
- Calculator guidance
- Teacher FAQs
The Spanish versions of the 2016-17 Parent Guide to TNReady (here) and the Parent Guide to TNReady Supports for Students with Disabilities (here) are now available and posted here on our website.
NAEP is the largest nationally representative assessment of what America's students know and can do in various subject areas including mathematics, reading, and science.
Since the same tests are used across the nation, NAEP results serve as a common metric for all states and selected urban districts. The assessment stays essentially the same from year to year, providing a clear picture of student academic progress over time. Learn more about NAEP from the National Center for Education Statistics.
Tennessee is the fastest improving state in the country since 2011, with students showing more growth over time than those in any other state. Thanks to the hard work of educators and students, Tennessee is on the right track toward long-term success.
