Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) and the Connecticut Academic Achievement Test (CAPT) Spring 2013 Presented to the Guilford Board of Education September 2013
General Information All Connecticut public school students in grades 3-8 and grade 10 participated in the statewide assessment in March. Students in grades 11 and 12 could have retaken any part of the CAPT if they did not reach goal on a particular part. Some special education students might have been eligible to participate in a Modified Assessment or a Skills Checklist.
District Reference Groups District Reference Groups (DRGs) have been defined based on characteristics such as income and education level of parents because research indicates that there is a strong link between test results and socioeconomic factors.
Math – State – 52.6% – DRG B – 76.22% – Guilford – 78.1% (97.8%) Reading – State –48.5% – DRG B – 71.3% – Guilford – 74.5% (96.7%) Writing – State – 62.1% – DRG B – 83.98% – Guilford – 88.8% (97.5%) Science – State – 49% – DRG B – 73.65% – Guilford – 75.7% (97.5%) 2013 Comparison Data – Grade 10 Percent of Students Meeting State Goal (Proficient)
Future Assessments Beginning in school year 2014-15, all Connecticut students in grades 3-8 and 11 will be taking a Smarter Balanced Assessment aligned with the Common Core State Standards. It is likely that the assessment will be electronic.
Planning for 2013-2014 Guilford is completing its transition to the Common Core State Standards. CAPT/CMT assessments were not designed to measure student learning relative to the new standards. The state board has requested federal approval for an option to administer Smarter Balanced assessment in ELA and math for 2013-2014.
