TCAP TESTING TIPS
Bradley County students in grades k-2 and 3-5 will begin the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program Achievement Test the week after Easter break.
The TCAP testing window for Bradley County Schools runs from April 22-May 2. The TCAP exam is a timed, multiple choice test that measures skills in reading, language arts, mathematics, science and social studies. State law requires that each student's TCAP score count as part of his or her semester average.
Students can prepare for the exam by taking a practice test at http://tinyurl.com/7abvxls. Below, you will find a few test-taking tips provided by the Tennessee Department of Education for both parents and students.
Tips for Parents
· See that your child is rested and eats breakfast the day of the test.
· See that your child arrives to school on time and is relaxed.
· Discuss the test openly and in a positive way.

· Designate a study time for your child without the distraction of TV, phone and other devices.
Tips for Students
· Read and pay careful attention to all directions.
