Introduction
What is the TCAP Achievement Test?
The TCAP Achievement Test is a multiple-choice test designed to measure student
achievement in certain skills in four content areas: Reading/Language Arts, Mathematics,
Science, and Social Studies. The questions in this practice test are examples of items used in
the actual test.
What are the questions testing?
Questions are written to test student performance in state content standards. The State
Content Standards and Performance Indicators were developed by the Tennessee Department
of Education. These Standards and Performance Indicators are listed on the State
Department of Education Web site at .
Who will be tested?
Students in grades 3 through 8 will be tested.
How long will the tests take?
The length of the tests will vary, depending on the grade level. The time limits are generous
and allow most students time to finish. Extended time limits only apply to students who are
eligible for special or English Language Learner (ELL) accommodations.
How will the tests be scored?
The test answers will be machine scored. Results from the test provide information about
how well students performed on the content being tested.
May calculators be used?
Calculators may be used on Part 1 and 2 of the mathematics portions of the TCAP
Achievement Test (grades 3-8) as per system policy.

Which test accommodations may be used?
The TCAP Achievement Test may be administered using various procedures that are
used during the student's daily educational program. Certain conditions must be met for
students to be eligible for Special and ELL accommodations.
What is the purpose of the practice test?
In a classroom learning session, these questions can be used to prepare students for the
actual test. Teachers can use the practice test to help familiarize students with the format
of test questions and how the actual test will be administered. This practice test can also be
used to inform parents of the type of test their children will be taking.
Here are some tips for preparing students for the test.
Remind students to:
Relax: It is normal to be somewhat anxious before the test. Remember that the score is only
one of a number of measures of performance.
Listen: Listen to and read the test directions carefully.
Plan Use of Time: First, answer all the questions you are sure about. Do not spend too
much time on any one question. If a question seems to take too long, skip it and return to it
later if you have extra time.
Pause and Think: If you are not sure how to answer a question, carefully read it again. Rule
out answer choices that you know are incorrect and then choose from those that remain.
