2015-2016 - Helping Tennessee Get Ready to Make the Most of TNReady
To improve academic achievement for students, Tennessee took an important step by raising expectations in the classroom. To be sure that students are learning more, Tennessee is entering a new era of measuring student learning.
This spring, students across the state are taking Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) exams in math and English language arts for the last time. Next year, Tennessee will shift to a new assessment that goes beyond multiple choice to measure learning in multiple ways and is designed to work with the standards used in the classroom. Tennessee educators have been eager to take this step so they have more and better information about how to help all students learn.
Tennessee will introduce the new English language arts and math assessments, called TNReady, during the 2015-16 school year, and it will be important to ensure that these new assessments provide teachers, parents, school and district leaders, and policymakers the information they need to support improved instruction and student learning. High-quality assessments should help students and their parents measure their progress on standards, offer accurate measurement of the skills that are needed for postsecondary education and the workforce, and guide the instruction of teachers.
