Very shortly, the Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT)  for 3rd-8th graders and Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) directed at 10th graders, will be replaced  by The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium,  one of two multi-state consortia, awarded funding from the U.S. Department of Education to develop an assessment system based on the new Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

The Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium is creating next-generation assessments aligned to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in English language arts/literacy and  Mathematics.  The new system of computer adaptive assessments will include summary and formative tests and  provide information to teachers about whether students are on track, as well as resources and tools for teachers to help students succeed.

The Center For Education Reform has created the PARENT POWER INDEX, which gives parents an interactive tool to discover whether their state affords them power – and if not, what they can do to get it.  Click on the  link below to find out what power Connecticut parents have compared to other states in the U.S.   Issues like school choice, charter schools, on-line learning, teacher quality and transparency are addressed.


Summary: A poor charter law has plagued the state since its inception, but lawmakers did adopt a parent trigger law giving parents some power to make choices. A hearty group of parents are trying to pull the trigger on a failing school in one district, but they have not yet succeeded. While the state prides itself on paying teachers well, its quality indices are below average. Connecticut falls in the middle of the pack on digital learning, and parents will not find information easily about options or school quality through government agencies. School board elections are held in odd numbered years during May, diminishing parent power to effect change.

The Center For Education Reform was was founded in 1993 to bridge the gap between policy and practice and restore excellence to education. Today the Center is the pioneer and leading advocate for structural and sustainable changes that can dramatically improve educational opportunities in the U.S. We do that by primarily working to (1) generate and share leading ideas and information, (2) support and enable grassroots activism, and (3) protect and stimulate media coverage and issue accuracy.
