Professional Educators of Tennessee COO Audrey Shores said, "It is imperative the state get this selection right. We look forward to learning more about Questar and their ability to deliver for Tennessee students and educators. As always we want to see less standardized testing, and more educator input in the process."
"It is encouraging to learn that the department has listened to feedback from educators and district leaders and will be phasing in the transition to online testing more slowly and deliberately. Our experience with Commissioner McQueen is that she will exercise due diligence. We at Professional Educators of Tennessee stand ready to work with her moving forward."
