- A third grade teacher in Tennessee
Do we know if this happened for sure on the TCAP? Do we know if students truly mastered the base/root word concept? Do we know how many students got base/root word questions wrong on the real TCAP because of this inconsistency? We will never know. The TCAP test is top-secret. Teachers can't see it. Parents can't see it. Administrators can't see it. Taxpayers can't see it, even though we paid the Pearson corporation handsomely for it.
Our children deserve better than this. Tennessee needs testing transparency.
