2 Tennessee lawmakers ask for probe into TCAP test score delay

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Two Republican Tennessee lawmakers have asked for an investigation into the delay of student test scores.

Meanwhile, three Democrats have filed an open records request seeking information about the late release of student scores on the Tennessee Comprehensive Assessment Program.

TCAP scores are used in the calculation of final grades for students primarily in grades 3 through 8. The Education Department said last month the scores would be delayed because of a change in assessments and allowed school districts to give grades without the scores, which were released May 23.

Rep. Billy Spivey, R-Lewisburg, told The Tennessean that he and Sen. Janice Bowling, R-Tullahoma, sent a request on Thursday asking the Tennessee Comptroller's Office to launch a formal investigation.

Comptroller spokesman Blake Fontenay decline to comment on the request.
