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. TN Ready is administered to grades 2-12 in the Spring and grades 9-12 in the Fall. TN Ready is an achievement test mandated by the State of Tennessee for grades 2-8 and is administered near the end of the school year in April-May. The purpose of the assessment is to measure student achievement and progress. Results will be communicated with students and parents as they become available from the state - typically over the summer following testing.
