Following the Day One failure of TNReady testing, the state proposed switching to only paper and pencil tests. Last week, the first sign of trouble on that front developed, as Dickson County reported a delay in receiving the printed materials.
While the Department of Education reports that most districts have received their materials, Chalkbeat reported yesterday that at least a dozen districts have had to reschedule testing due to printing delays. Those districts include:
- Tennessee Achievement School District
- Hamblen County
- Maury County
- Madison County
- Murfreesboro City
- Putnam County
- Robertson County
- Sevier County
- Sullivan County
- Tipton County
- Wilson County
Despite these delays, the TNReady testing will continue, and in fact, many districts have already begun some paper and pencil testing.
Still, it seems that TNReady just can’t catch a break in its first year.
