• Beginning with the 2015-16 school year, the TNReady assessment will provide students, teachers, and parents with more detailed, accurate, and authentic information about each student’s progress and achievement in the classroom.
• Teachers and parents want to know how their students are doing in school and where they need to improve.
• Just as we take our children to the doctor for their annual check-ups, TNReady offers parents, students and teachers with a new and improved academic check-up each year to make sure all students are moving forward and are track to graduate from high school and be successful in college or the workplace.
• TNReady is more than just a new “TCAP.” It is a new way to assess what our students know and what we can do to help them succeed in the future.
TNReady is the state’s new student achievement assessment in reading, writing, and math in grades 3–11 designed to assess what is being taught in Tennessee’s classrooms. TNReady has been developed by Tennessee educators to better assess student knowledge, as well as critical thinking and problem-solving skills – in short, all the things students will need to succeed following high school. TNReady will replace the state’s TCAP multiple-choice only tests in reading and math and will include a variety of question types as well as writing.

Tennessee students and teachers deserve your help and support.
