State scraps TNReady testing...
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Tennessee DOE announced Wednesday it is terminating its contract with TN Ready test provider due to several missed deadlines.
Tennessee's education commissioner announced this afternoon that schools no longer have to administer TNReady tests to students in grades 3-8 this school year because of delays distributing the paper version of the test.
"If districts have received materials for a complete grade or subject in grades 3-8 (i.e. fifth-grade math), they will have the option to administer that specific grade or subject level; however, the department will only be able to deliver limited student performance information for these particular grades and subjects. High school tests will be fully scored, and these results will be delivered later this fall," a statement from the state education department said.
The state moved back to paper tests this year after the platform for online testing crashed during its first day in February. ... See MoreSee Less
