Is Your Family Ready

Starting this school year, Tennessee public schools will be using a better way to measure how much students have learned. A new statewide assessment, called TNReady, replaces the old TCAP math and English tests for students in grades 3–11. This new and improved test will better measure the real-world skills that prepare Tennessee students to graduate ready to take on the world and win.
