Testing Trouble in Tennessee

Last week was a very bad week for the new TNReady test in Tennessee.

First, the state’s Achievement School District announced it won’t take over any additional schools next year due to the transition to TNReady this year.

Then, on Thursday, the state revealed that tests had not arrived at many districts across the state — meaning a further delay in the administration of TNReady Phase II.

After this revelation, the state decided it would provide additional flexibility to districts in re-scheduling the test.

Oh, and a state legislator called on the Department of Education to cancel the test for this year and fire the state’s testing vendor, Measurement, Inc.
