With the all the uncertainty of testing, it is a challenging time to be a Superintendent or Principal in the State of Tennessee. The change from TCAP to TNReady, the end of EXPLORE® and PLAN® testing, and the most significant changes in years concerning the PSAT®, SAT®, and ACT® tests, have caused confusion and concern. Despite what legislators and testing companies may create next, the goals remain the same:

 Increase student achievement in the classroom and on high‐stakes tests,

 Increase graduation rates and college access, and

 Increase college and career readiness skills.

With 25 years of partnering with educators at over 4,000 schools nationwide, Cambridge has developed a research‐based model of best practices that is easy to implement and effective at raising test scores.

2. Learn how to implement a proven model to increase college and career readiness,

3. Learn the impact of Unified Testing Readiness and how to always be prepared in the changing landscape of testing,
