TCAP has been the state's testing program since 1988, and it includes TNReady, the state's assessments in math, English language arts, social studies, and science. As the state has transitioned to higher academic standards over the past several years, and will continue to do so, our tests have become better aligned to what educators are teaching. The assessments now include rigorous questions that measure students' writing, critical thinking, and problem solving skills. - See more at: http://tn.gov/education/topic/tnready#sthash.SvpFIisn.dpuf
Testing time limits have been reduced for the 2016-2017 school year. Please see the attached chart with the time limits for each assessment.
