Grades 3-8 TCAP Achievement Assessments

Annual assessments play a key role in the teaching and learning process, and they are critical to ensure that all students are meeting higher standards and are making progress on their path to postsecondary and the workforce. The TCAP assessments are designed to provide Tennessee students, teachers, and families with better information about what students know and understand.

Each test (by subject) is divided into multiple subparts and will be administered on paper in a single administration window at the end of the school year.

English language arts (4 subparts) will consist of multiple choice and selected response items, as well as reading from texts and providing a written response.

Mathematics (3 subparts) will consist of multiple choice, multiple select, equation editor, matching tables, and graphing representations.

Science (2 subparts) will measure current content standards and consist of multiple-choice items.

Social Studies (2 subparts) will consist of multiple choice, as well as reading from texts and providing a written response.

Results to Parents & Students

Quick score reports, which provide teachers and parents with a snapshot of their student's performance, are provided to districts by the end of the school year. These are used to help calculate final grades for report cards if applicable.

Districts receive individual performance reports which summarize student performance in more detail, and we will share those reports in the fall 2022.
