The Connecticut Mastery Tests measure students’ performance in the areas of reading, language arts and mathematics. Each subtest will take between 45 and 60 minutes. Results from these tests will provide the school with information related to the progress of instruction and performance of our students.
This is an important school experience for your child. We ask that all reasonable attempts be made to ensure good school attendance. All testing will begin at so it is also important that children arrive to school on time. If your student arrives after the testing begins, he/she will not be able to take the test that day and will need to take it on a make-up day, missing instructional time. The best way to prepare your child for these tests is to be certain he/she is well rested, relaxed and has had a good breakfast.
