2023 Spring Testing

Spring 2023 Testing Information

Below is information regarding our Spring 2023 TCAP Schedule and other spring testing that will be completed before school concludes for the year.  Make-up testing will be completed daily at the conclusion of the regular testing time. It is important that students be present and on time for each testing session unless absolutely unavoidable. If your child has a doctor's appointment that cannot be rescheduled please let your teacher know immediately and also call the school office at 423-422-4123. If a student begins a test and cannot finish it, their test will not be scored by the state and it will result in them not receiving a score from the state for that content area. If we know that the student will need to leave during a test session and we know in advance then we can administer that subpart as a make-up test later.


A schedule is included below for Grades 2-5 TCAP (April 17- 28, 2023), TCAP ELA Field Testing (May 10, 2023), STAR Testing, and iReady testing. Information will be added as it becomes available.
Third Grade TCAP ELA retake dates are scheduled for May 30 & 31, 2023.
TCAP Testing
Each year, students in the state of Tennessee participate in the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program better known to students and parents as T-CAP. These tests are given in compliance with Every Student Succeeds Act §1177 and Tennessee Code Annotated (T.C.A.) §49-1602. Beginning in Tennessee in 1988, the T-CAP features tests in English language arts (ELA), math, social studies, and science.  Alternative programs like MSAA and T-CAP-Alt for students with special needs are also part of T-CAP.    Districts and schools work together to then build a schedule that works best for their students. 
It is important to note that students will be taking their T-CAP assessments with paper for the 22-23 school year in grades 2-5.
