Standardized test scores are in for West Hartford, and while CAPT scores remained steady, the district saw mixed results for CMTs. Scores still exceed state averages.
The Connecticut Department of Education released the Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) and the Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) scores for all Connecticut school districts on Tuesday.
On the CAPT test, which is given to 10th graders, West Hartford students showed slight changes across the board.
However, the CMTs were a different story, with more scores showing a slight decline.
Slight declines were seen in third, fourth and fifth grade, with a slight increase in fifth-grade science and seventh-grade math and reading. Eighth-grade saw a nine-point drop in math scores.
The CMTs are administered to all students from grade three to grade eight. Students are tested in math, reading and writing, and in middle school, they are tested in science as well.
Students are labeled based on their performance. The labels, in descending order, are advanced, goal, proficient, basic and below basic.
