Tennessee Academic Standards
The Tennessee Academic Standards provide a common set of expectations for what students will know and be able to do at the end of a grade for each subject area. Our state’s standards are rooted in the knowledge and skills students need to succeed in their postsecondary studies and/or careers.

Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP) has been the state’s testing program since 1988, and it includes TCAP assessments in math, English language arts, social studies, and science, as well as alternative assessments, like MSAA and TCAP-Alt, for students with special needs.
Foundational Literacy Skills Plan
On February 3, 2021, Governor Bill Lee signed into law the Tennessee Literacy Success Act, which amended Tennessee Code Annotated Title 49, Chapters 1, 5, and 6 relative to literacy. The law outlines a bold policy framework to improve literacy rates in Tennessee.
The law requires school districts to develop a Foundational Literacy Skills Plan to articulate locally driven solutions to improve literacy outcomes for students. These plans must be submitted to the Tennessee Department of Education for approval.
