TNReady Testing Begins With Problems, State Ed Officials Say Issue Resolved

TNReady Testing Begins With Problems, State Ed Officials Say Issue Resolved

According to Tennessee Department of Education spokeswoman Sara Gast, no server had crashed Monday and the issue was not related to the volume of students taking the test.

The district said testing would resume Tuesday after the testing vendor, Questar, identified the problem.

The delay follows a series of issues that surrounded the TN Ready exam and its implementation, including previous year, which saw more than 9,000 exams scored incorrectly by exam vendor Questar Assessment.

Many parents questioned how the issue was not "statewide" after issues were reported from districts in Cumberland, Cannon, Rutherford, Knox, Washington, Grundy and several other counties.

The issues with the online platform first began to pop up in East Tennessee.

In an email, Tennessee education commissioner Dr. Candice McQueen, reached out to school directors to express her frustration with the issue.

As part of that implementation, students in eighth grade this year will try out a new test called the California Science Test, or CAST. It will include a group of stakeholders representing educators, lawmakers, parents, school board members and students from across the state. However, some high school students started testing around 7:30 a.m. and were able to complete their assessments before encountering an issue.
