TNReady Test Prep

"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 Department of Education)
 
The following resources are for parents, teachers, and administrators that will provide information needed to understand TNReady and to better prepare students to be successful on TNReady.
