NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A task force formed to review student testing and assessment in Tennessee is meeting in Nashville on Wednesday.

The group, which was formed in March, is charged with identifying best practices in testing and how those assessments align with required state tests.

The task force will also identify best practices in assessment at the school and district level.

The panel includes a broad spectrum of education leaders, teachers and stakeholders.

Education Commissioner Candice McQueen will convene the meeting, which will be the task force's second.

It is being held from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the John Seigenthaler Center. The meeting is open to the public.
