The Connecticut Mastery Test, or CMT, is a test administered to students in grades 3 through 8. The CMT tests students in mathematics, reading comprehension, writing, and science (science was administered for the first time in March 2008). The other major standardized test administered to schoolchildren in Connecticut is the Connecticut Academic Performance Test, or CAPT, which is given in grade 10.The CMT is graded on a scale from 1 to 5 in each area tested which are mathematics, reading, science (for only fifth grade and eighth grade) and writing. On this scale, 5 is considered "Advanced," 4 is considered "Goal," 3 is considered "Proficient," 2 is considered "Basic," and 1 is considered "Below basic."
Until the 2005-2006 school year the CMT was administered in the fall; now it is given in the spring.Source: Connecticut Mastery Test, Wikipedia
