Some Districts Experience ‘Slowdown' With TNReady Testing

Despite some districts experiencing a brief “slowdown,” TN Ready testing resumed Thursday morning, the department of education said.  

As testing began Monday morning, numerous issues were reported with the test, including the inability for students to be able to login or to save their tests. 

“This morning, there was a brief period where some districts experienced a slowdown in test administration. It has been resolved, and districts are testing now. So far today, 209,000 tests have been submitted,” Sara Gast, Communications Director for the Department of Education, said in a statement.

Dickson County Schools suspended testing for the day due to the lingering issues. 

Meanwhile, Democratic lawmakers have called for the resignation of Tennessee Education Commissioner Candice McQueen, citing the repeated failures with TNReady.

McQueen has been at the helm of the Tennessee Department of Education for three years, and during each year issues have been reported with the state-wide assessment test.
