WESTON, Conn. Westons performance on Connecticuts standardized tests rose in three subjects at the high school level this year. At the elementary and middle schools, however, the results were mixed.
The Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) and Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) are administered annually in March to students across Connecticut. The CMT tests math, reading and writing for grades three through eight, and science for grades five and eight. The CAPT covers math, reading, writing and science for 10th-grade students. Both have five levels of performance for each subject: below basic, basic, proficient, goal and advanced.
The scores for students in 10th-grade improved in science, reading and writing while falling slightly in mathematics. Results show that 100 percent of students were at or above proficiency for science and writing, 98.9 percent for reading and 96.8 for math. Only the math score was lower than 2011s results.
At the elementary and middle schools, results were mixed, with grade four and six showing improvement in reading and writing, grade seven showing jumps in reading and math, and grade eight showing improvements in writing and math. Grades three and five saw proficiency levels drop in math, reading and writing by small margins.
