Assistant Rutherford County Schools superintendent Richard Zago told WGNS News that the annual TCAP test are now called Tennessee Ready Assessment. He also explained that the annual test are a little different this year...
In order for a school student to get the question answered correctly, the pupil will have to properly check each answer that applies. In other words, if the student is working on a question that has two answers, he or she will have to check both answers to get it right. Zago said that the questions that have multiple right answers will have the word "answers" written plural as opposed to "answer" written singular.
TN Ready Testing:
TN Ready is Tennessee's new and improved Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program or TCAP test for English language arts and math in grades 3-11, and it replaces the old TCAP tests for those subjects starting in the 2015-16 school year, according to the state of Tennessee. This will mark the first major change in school testing since 1983.
Annual assessments serve as an academic check-up to make sure all students are moving forward. TN Ready is designed to assess true student understanding and problem-solving abilities, not just basic memorization skills. The new test will also be online so that parents can help their children prepare for the tests in February and April of 2016.
