The Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program, or TCAP, is a set of statewide assessments given in Tennessee to measure students' skills and progress.
Students in grades 3-8 take the Achievement Test, and high school students take End of Course exams for various subjects. More information about the Achievement test can be found below, and more information End of Course exams can be found on the Secondary Assessments page.
The Achievement Test is a timed, multiple choice assessment that measures skills in Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies.
In addition, some schools choose to administer the Achievement Test to students in Kindergarten and Grades 1 and 2. The 'K-2 Achievement' link below provides more information.
Tennessee is an English-only state; all assessments are provided in English only. We do not offer any of our assessments in a native language format.
