CAPT General Information
The Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) is a state-mandated standardized test administered by the Connecticut State Board of Education that all public school tenth-grade students in Connecticut must take. If a student does not pass the CAPT, the test will be administered during the student's junior year. Students in Region 15 must pass the CAPT as a graduation requirement.
Since 1994, the CAPT has been used to measure the achievement levels of grade 10 students throughout the state. The CAPT assesses critical knowledge and skills needed for success in advanced studies and the workplace. CAPT results are reported on high school transcripts so that prospective colleges and employers can review them.
In March, high school sophomores will participate in approximately eight hours of testing, which generally occur over a one- to two-week period. The results of this testing will show how well students are achieving compared to the expectations set for all grade 10 Connecticut public school students.
