2019-20 Assessment Updates(Links will be updated to 2019-20 information as it becomes available from the TDOE)
Students in grades 3-8 will take assessments in Math, English/Language Arts, Social Studies, and Science.
High school students will take assessments for courses with End of Course exams: English I and II; Algebra I, Geometry, Algebra II or Integrated Math I, II, and III; U.S. History; and Biology
Our state tests serve multiple objectives:
- They provide feedback about students’ academic progress and how it aligns with grade-level expectations, providing parents and teachers a big-picture perspective about how a student is progressing compared to peers across the district and state, including a student’s strengths and growth opportunities.
- This builds confidence and transparency about students’ readiness for college and the workforce among Tennessee universities and employers and holds us accountable to serving all students fairly.
- Assessments help educators strengthen instruction and reflect on their practice, and allow us to highlight schools where students are excelling, so we can learn from those who are doing well.
- State assessments also help inform decisions at the state level and help state and district leaders determine how to allocate resources, better invest in schools, and identify where we may need to offer additional support.
- All assessments are state-mandated.
If available, assessment results will be distributed to students and families when report cards are sent home at the end of the school year.
