Guilford CMT and CAPT Scores Released

The town well exceeds the state averages on both tests.

 

Guilford schools still well exceed the state averages in both CMT and CAPT scores, recently released state data on the two standardized tests show.

In addition, the district generally improved on both the CAPT and CMTs compared to the 2011 results, with some grade levels seeing modest increases in some testing areas and only slight decreases in others. 

For instance, on the CAPT, which is given to students in grade 10, the percentage of students performing at or above goal in science increased from 77.7 in 2011 to 82 in 2012. The percentage of those performing at or above proficiency in science increased from 96.3 to 98.2. In reading, however, the percentage of students performing at or above goal dropped from 78.2 in 2011 to 77.5 in 2012. The percentage of those performing at or above proficiency in reading remained nearly the same.

Guilford administrators are expected to give a detailed analysis of the town's test scores to the school board in the fall.

In releasing the CMT and CAPT test scores for individual districts this year, the state Department of Education said that CMT scores — given to students in grades 3 through 8 — improved incrementally while CAPT performance — administered to 10th-graders and required for graduation — was mixed.

"While student performance increased in all content areas when compared to the CAPT baseline year of 2007, it decreased in some areas when compared to last year," the department said in a news release. "As compared to 2011, performance increased slightly in writing, remained relatively constant in science and reading, and decreased in mathematics."
