MEMPHIS, Tenn. — When Shelby County elementary and middle school students get their report cards Friday, one very important part of the grade will be missing.

The state isn’t ready to release this year’s TCAP test scores.

That’s an issue for every school district in the state, because state law requires TCAP scores be included.

Most school districts asked for a waiver, which means final grades for students in grades three through eight won’t include TCAP scores.

Tennessee hopes to have TCAP scores ready in ten days, giving it more time to align results with the Common Core initiative,  the national program aimed at making American students more competitive with other countries.

    Why do they make the test at the very end of the year and have to squeeze the scores into the rest of the grades anyway?? Oh yeah, they’re educators which means they know everything. It does appear to be an extremely smart decision.
