Pop quiz! When Tennessee students in grades 3-11 begin taking TNReady, they will be greeted with:

The answer would be E – all of the above.
TNReady, Tennessee’s state test that better measures student progress, uses a few different types of question formats to give students a variety of ways to show what the know and can do. But for parents and older students who might be used to tests that rely predominantly or entirely on multiple-choice questions, it’s important to know that TNReady is different.
To give parents and students a sense of the types of questions asked on TNReady, we dug through the Tennessee Department of Education’s parent guide to find sample questions to show a few of the questions types on the assessment.
