FAQs: State Testing (TNREADY/EOC) Begins April 21!

What is TNReady?

TNReady is a part of the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) and is designed to assess true student understanding, not just basic memorization and test-taking skills. It is a way to assess what our students know and what we can do to help them succeed in the future.

Who is required to take TNReady tests?

All students in Tennesseestudents in grades 3 through 8 take TNReady tests covering English language arts, math, science and social studies.

What Resources are available to students to help prepare for testing?

Strong instruction every day is the best preparation for students. Revised assessment blueprints provide an overview of test structure. Current academic standards are available here. We also encourage educators to access our standards training materials (here within the “Teacher Training” section).

Practice tests are available on Livebinders.

Teachers of students with the most significant cognitive disabilities can continue to utilize NCSPpartners.org or the NCSC wiki for MSAA preparation. Other instructional resources created specifically for the TCAP-Alt assessment are available here.
