TNReady English Language Arts

  • The English language arts (ELA) assessments will be administered in four subparts.
  • The time allotted for each subpart and the total time for ELA is similar to last year.
  • The first subpart is the writing portion of the assessment, which must be completed during the first week of the testing window because student responses are scored individually by hand.
  •  The ELA assessment will assess the Tennessee Academic Standards through literary and informational texts requiring students to demonstrate the ability to read closely, analyze text, answer text-dependent questions, provide a written response to a prompt, and demonstrate command of the English language. Additionally, in grades 3 and 4, fluency, comprehension, and listening skills are measured.
