    The Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) spring testing window begins Monday, April 18.

    The TCAP assessment is a State-mandated, timed test that measures skills in English/language arts, math and science for students in grades 3-5. Students in grades 6-8 will take those tests and an additional social studies assessment. End-of-Course (EOC) exams are given in select high school courses.

    Tests in grades 3-8 will be paper-based, while EOC exams will be computer-based. 

    Scores for middle school students will count as 10 percent of their semester average, and EOC scores will be used as 15 percent of a high school student's semester average.

    Schools will communicate testing schedules with their families. Elementary testing must be completed by April 29. Secondary testing must be completed by May 3.
