TCAP Preparation
Concerned

Cookeville, TN

#1 Mar 24, 2010
I am new to the school system, and I am looking for information on why so much of our children's time is being spent preparing for TCAP testing, rather than traditional classroom learning. After all, shouldn't standardized testing be based on what these kids are learning in a classroom setting? Please...correct me if I am wrong...but it seems that the district's focus is more on getting great test scores than teaching students the life lessons that they will need...

Because T-CAP scores tell how much the child has learned throughout the year and it places the children in certain classes for his/her needs for the next year. And in 8th grade it determines if the child will be going to highschool or not. And it helps colleges determine if they can accept the young adult into the college or not. So T-CAP test ARE THE MORE IMPORTANT TESTS!!
