Online TNReady testing is still relatively new across the state, and to help parents and students get familiar with the Nextera assessment platform, a public demo is now avialable (here). This school year (2017-18), high school students began online testing statewide, and online testing is optional in grades 5-8. Next year, grades 5-12 will all test online with an option of online or paper testing in grades 3 and 4.
The public demo can help students and parents become familiar with what the tests will look like, as well as the types of questions that might appear to students on their tests (like multiple choice, drag and drop, etc.). The questions in the public demo represent a sample of items from various grade levels and content areas. Students can check and see if their answers are correct by using the provided answer key.
It is not meant to be a demonstration of content, as there are a limited number of items available for math, English language arts, and science. An answer key is provided for each subject area.
For the online demo, you will be able to choose from a list of accommodations to get a feel for how they affect the testing environment. These accommodations on the official test are controlled by the student's IEP or 504 plan and cannot be turned on by the student. These need to be added to a student's profile before testing begins (please talk to a teacher or school administrator if you need more information about testing accommodations).
