CMT General Information
Students enrolled in public school in Connecticut are required to take the CMT in grades 3 through 8. Since 1985, the CMT has assessed essential mathematics, reading, and writing skills that students are expected to master (science skills in grades 5 and 8). The content of the test is based on the Connecticut curriculum frameworks. State and federal laws require that all students participate in statewide tests such as the CMT.
The five levels of performance are: Advanced, Goal, Proficient, Basic and Below Basic. The goal range is composed of those who score at the two highest levels, Advanced and Goal.
