Teacher Student Connection (TSC)

After Teacher Student Connection (TSC) is opened and prior to teacher claiming, testing coordinators must select/mark students who are Teacher Ineligible or Student Ineligible. Definitions and explanations for both Ineligible status can be found on page 3 of the CMCSS TSC Support Manual (linked below).

The state has released a TSC Building Testing Coordinator PowerPoint (linked below).

State legislation requires each teacher complete his or her own TSC. Testing coordinators may complete TSC for a teacher only if her or she has written permission from the teacher (see page 18 of the TSC Support manual (linked below). The TN state department of education’s latest Claiming Guidance may be found here.
