CTP Overview

CTP: Comprehensive Testing Program
Grades 1 – 11


The Comprehensive Testing Program (CTP) is a rigorous assessment for high achieving students in areas such as reading, listening, vocabulary, writing, science (online only) and mathematics. Verbal and quantitative reasoning subtests are part of the CTP beginning in Grade 3. The CTP helps compare content specific, curriculum-based performance to the more conceptual knowledge base found in reasoning tests.

“The kids loved doing the tests online; … the teachers were able to establish friendliness with the tests; the reports … are quite accessible; and we are already ‘curricularizing’ what we’ve derived from the kids’ performance. Thank you so much for guiding us through the process.”
