Tennessee wants to use testing giant Pearson Education to administer the state’s TNReady online assessment.
The state’s procurement office notified the British-owned testing group on Thursday in a letter of intent to award the contract to run the TNReady assessment.
The state choosing Pearson indicates a departure from Questar Assessment, Inc., which has run into numerous troubles administering the TNReady assessment. It also marks the third vendor selected to run the state’s TNReady test, along with a familiar name in state testing.
The 2018-19 TNReady testing season was the first year in which the state was able to administer the assessment free of widespread issues.
