The Franklin Special School District's Office of Student Achievement is dedicated to the idea that all children can learn and grow. To ensure that students are receiving the best education possible, the district uses a variety of tests to evaluate their progress. The TCAP (Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program) is one such tool. It's designed to assess students' true understanding, not just their memorization and test-taking skills.
This way, educators can get a better idea of what students know and can do. Students with an Individualized Education Program (IEP), 504 Plan, or Individualized Learning Plan (ILP) are still entitled to request additional time for tests, but they must meet the deadlines defined in the accommodation. The Office of Student Achievement is committed to providing all students with the resources they need to succeed. The TCAP is just one of many tests used by the Franklin Special School District to evaluate student performance.
Other tests include the Tennessee End-of-Course Assessment (EOC), which measures student mastery of specific courses; the Tennessee Alternate Assessment (TAA), which is used to assess students with significant cognitive disabilities; and the Tennessee English Language Proficiency Assessment (TELPA), which evaluates English language learners' proficiency in English. The Office of Student Achievement also uses a variety of other assessments, such as the Tennessee Early Learning Developmental Standards (TELDS) and the Tennessee Early Intervention System (TEIS). These assessments are designed to measure a student's development in areas such as language, literacy, mathematics, science, and social-emotional development. The Franklin Special School District is committed to providing all students with the best education possible.
