TCAP Social Studies

  • The social studies assessments in grades 6 through 8 will assess the current Tennessee Academic Standards for social studies, which require students to demonstrate historical awareness, geographical understanding, and the ability to analyze primary source documents.
  • For high school students, the U.S. History assessment, which is the only End-of-Course exam in social studies, students will be assessed on the current Tennessee Academic Standards and required to demonstrate a deep understanding of civics, culture, economics, and geography within the context of U.S. History.
