Ready for School, Career,
and Life

How can we make sure Tennessee students graduate ready to take on the world and win? In school, students need strong academic standards that emphasize learning real-world skills and the TNReady assessment that lets them show what they know and what they can do. At home, parents can provide the support that helps their students achieve more.

Why TNReady Matters to Tennessee Parents and Students

  1. Tennessee’s statewide assessment, TNReady, tests students on their real understanding of material, not rote memorization or test-taking tricks.
  2. TNReady is designed to assess your student on real-world skills – critical thinking, problem-solving, analysis, and writing – needed for college, technical training, military service, and work.
  3. TNReady helps prepare your student to make the most of every opportunity ahead – college credit courses, college placement tests, military entrance exams, and Tennessee Promise.
  4. TNReady score reports will explain what your child has learned – and what you and teachers can do to make sure the learning and growing continue.

The Expect More, Achieve More Coalition wants every Tennessee student to graduate ready to take on the world and win. We provide information and support to K-12 educators and parents so they can help students meet high academic expectations, develop real-world skills, and show what they know and can do on high-quality annual state assessments.
