Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program (TCAP)
Students in grades 3-8 take the Tennessee Comprehensive
Assessment Program (TCAP) Achievement Test each spring. The
Achievement Test is a timed, multiple choice assessment that
measures skills in Reading, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science
and Social Studies. Student results are reported to parents,
teachers and administrators.
Merit’s language arts and math software programs correlate
to the Tennessee Curriculum Standards and can help students
prepare for the TCAP tests. The content and format of Merit’s
programs can help students develop and strengthen their test-taking
skills as well as their reading, writing and math skills.
Merit reading software has been proven -- through rigorous,
scientifically based research -- to increase both student
reading comprehension and standardized test scores. Merit
research study findings reveal that education software is
an effective tool to improve test scores and academic performance.
