NORWALK, Conn. – Today is the day for those who have been waiting to see a standardized evaluation of the students in Norwalk schools: results of the 2012 Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) and 2012 Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) are available.
Statewide, student performance on the CMT increased in several grades and content areas from last year, continuing a trend of incremental improvement since the CMT baseline year of 2006, according to a release from the Connecticut State Department of Education. The CAPT results statewide are mixed.
While student performance increased in all content areas when compared to the CAPT baseline year of 2007, it decreased in some areas when compared to last year. As compared to 2011, performance increased slightly in writing, remained relatively constant in science and reading, and decreased in mathematics.
