House Speaker Beth Harwell is requesting a hearing after nearly 10,000 TNReady test scores were incorrectly scored. According to reports, 8000 tests scored too low and around 1400 tests scored too high. Harwell, who is one of the state’s highest ranking Republicans, released the following statement to WTVF on Monday:

“We have made great strides over the last several years in education, and we must be diligent in ensuring we continue these gains. We know that accountability has been a large part of this improvement. However, the news that nearly 10,000 TNReady tests were scored incorrectly has resulted in educators, parents, and legislators seeking answers. In addition, the amount of testing has also raised questions. To that end, I have asked Representative Jeremy Faison, the Chairman of the House Government Operations Committee, to hold a hearing on these issues surrounding testing. I look forward to the committee’s work so that we can ensure our students and educators have the tools they need to succeed.”
