Tennessee has adopted the Common Core State Standards to prepare students with the most important knowledge and skills to attain higher education or careers and compete in an increasingly competitive work environment. These standards will emphasize critical thinking, problem solving, and creativity. The transition will also include new assessments that will give students, parents and educators better information about college- and career-readiness based on performance beyond multiple-choice tests. The state will have fully implemented the standards in 2014-15, which is the first year the new exams will be given.
