Bureau of Student Assessment
Connecticut’s statewide summative assessment system consists of the Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT), the Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT), the CMT/CAPT Skills Checklist and the CMT/CAPT Modified Assessment System (MAS). Together these assessments reflect curriculum and instruction that Connecticut educators and other stakeholders believe are important to promoting positive outcomes for all students. This system measures progress toward the educational goals established as mastery criteria and state standards for each content area tested.
Connecticut’s two alternate assessments, the CMT/CAPT Skills Checklist and the CMT/CAPT MAS, are available for students with disabilities enrolled in Grades 3 through 8 and Grade 10. Only identified special education students meeting specific eligibility criteria may be assessed with these alternate assessments if determined by an Individualized Education Program (IEP) team.
