Science Assessments: All districts were required to continue administration of the CMT/CAPT Science assessments in grades 5, 8, and 10. The Science results (District/School Performance Indices or DPI/SPI) based on CMT and/or CAPT for all districts and schools are posted in an Excel file.
The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) received approval from the U.S. Department of Education (USED) to offer districts the choice, for 2013-14, to administer the Smarter Balanced Field Test (SB-FT) in lieu of the Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) and/or the Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Pursuant to this "field-test flexibility", about 90 percent of Connecticut school districts administered the SB-FT. Only those districts that administered the CMT and/or CAPT in English Language Arts and Mathematics will receive district/school performance reports in 2013-14.
All states are required by the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) to publicly report on the number of children with disabilities who were provided accommodations in order to participate on regular statewide assessments at the district and school level (34 CFR section 300.160(f)). Data regarding accommodations on the CMT/CAPT assessments are posted here in an Excel file.
