We've been hearing a lot in recent days about over 94-hundred TnReady tests across the state being scored incorrectly. Rutherford County was among the 33 districts with a batch of incorrect scores.
Rutherford County Schools Supervisor of Instruction Richard Zago (ZAY-go) tells NewsRadio WGNS it was actually staff within the local central office that discovered anomalies in scoring at Blackman and Holloway High Schools that caused the state to look into it:
Zago says Edie Emery and Kevin Whittington in the central office noticed some issues as far back as May:
Of the statewide tests were scored improperly, Rutherford County had about 550 of them at Blackman and Holloway High Schools on ELA (English Language Arts) assessment that were wrong:
Zago says when parents get the TnReady results for their children, they will get a much more detailed look into their child's achievement on last year's testing:
Parents of students in high schools last year will be the first to see TnReady results. Those who were in grades 3 through 8 last year will see their scores later, since the county hasn't been sent those yet.
