Application Open: Performance Level Descriptor Committees

The department is currently accepting applications for the Range Performance Level Descriptor Committees for grades 3-8 in social studies as well as for grades 3 and 4 in English language arts. Performance Level Descriptors (PLDs) are statements that describe the knowledge, skills, and abilities expected of a student at each performance level of the TNReady assessment. Educators who are chosen to participate on these committees will write Performance Level Descriptors alongside fellow educators. Applications are available at the links below.

All committees will meet March 5-6 at the Embassy Suites in Murfreesboro. Committee members will receive compensation, and lodging and reimbursements (e.g., mileage, substitute coverage) will be provided. All interested applicants should complete the online applications above by 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 24. Applicants will be notified of their application status no later than Feb. 9.
