The Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) is a state-mandated assessment system that evaluates students' academic progress in mathematics, English language arts, social studies, and science. This system is used to measure a student's progress and help determine if they are meeting the goals set for them. However, other factors such as attendance records, motivation levels, engagement and interest levels, social skills, and classroom participation are also taken into account when assessing a student's progress. The Tennessee Department of Education has made it clear that parents cannot refuse or opt out of mandatory evaluations. The Franklin Special School District is committed to the belief that all children can learn, and educational evaluations in Franklin TN are an essential part of this process.
By monitoring academic tests, attendance records, motivation levels, engagement and interest levels, social skills, and classroom participation, educators can get a better understanding of a student's performance and make sure they are on track for success.
