The Constructed Response Assessment will focus only on math content for the 2012-13 school year. All students in third through eighth grade will take three different assessments. All items were developed to measure the content knowledge required by the current rigorous Tennessee Curriculum Standards and the new Common Core Standards located at http://tncore.org.
The Constructed Response Assessment will be scored using a Holistic scoring method. Each individual task will be scored for consideration of the student's content knowledge and their ability to perform the math practices applicable to the assessed task. Each task will have a scoring guide unique for the task.
Phase I: Oct. 15 -26, 2012
Phase II: Feb. 11 - 22, 2013
Summative: April 29 - May 17, 2013
Statewide, students in third through eighth grades will complete a test designed for their specific grade level.
Students will be provided with the same accommodations as they would for an administration of the TCAP Achievement Test.
