Connecticut: Understanding Your Child's Score on the CMT
The Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) is the standard assessment administered to students in Grades 3 through 8. Students are assessed in the content areas of reading, mathematics, writing and science (Grades 5 and 8). Reports of individual student achievement relative to performance standards in each of these content areas are provided to the school districts and parents/guardians of each student tested. The CMT provides information about achievement that is used for many purposes including:
- setting high expectations and standards for student achievement;
- testing a comprehensive range of academic skills;
- disseminating useful test achievement information about students, schools and districts;
- identifying students in need of intervention; assessing equitable educational opportunities;
- and monitoring student progress in Grades 3 through 8 over time.
