TNReady problems in 2018
The superintendents of the state’s two largest school districts declared in a Friday letter “no confidence” in TNReady after numerous years of problems.

The letter from Hopson and Joseph comes after yet another year of TNReady problems.
Hopson said of the testing snafus that “there’s just such a level of dejection” from teachers and administrators.
This year, after initially believing there was a “deliberate attack” against the state’s vendor, it was revealed that Questar Assessment made unauthorized changes to the online test that caused issues for students.
