|NASHVILLE – Tennesseans for Student Success today released the following statement on TNReady:
“Yesterday, Commissioner Candice McQueen announced the state did not have confidence the online platform, which hosted TNReady, could support this year’s annual assessment. For the remainder of the testing window, students will be given a paper and pencil version of the assessment. While this is not ideal, it doesn’t change what TNReady has promised to do – give parents, teachers, administrators, officials, and taxpayers a focused and meaningful measure of what students are learning.
“We have every confidence in Tennessee’s students and teachers. Whether an assessment is given online or on paper, we look forward to celebrating the gains made in classrooms across Tennessee.”
