English Language Arts (ELA)

  • The English language arts (ELA) assessments will be administered in four subparts for grades 3-8 and in three subparts for high school end-of-course exams.
  • The time allotted for each subpart varies.  Click here to see testing times and subparts.
  • The first subpart is the writing portion of the assessment, which must be completed during the first week of the testing window because student responses are scored individually by hand.
  • The ELA assessment will assess the Tennessee Academic Standards through literary and informational texts requiring students to demonstrate the ability to read closely, analyze text, answer text-dependent questions, provide a written response to a prompt, and demonstrate command of the English language.
