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.

COMING SOON!

ERB is pleased to announce that we are developing the CTP5 for both paper/pencil and online administrations.  ERB is partnering with ETS, assessment experts, and a task force of ERB member schools in the development process. We anticipate that the CTP5 will be ready for the 2018-19 school year.
 
In addition, we will be offering current users of the paper/pencil version of the CTP4 the option to purchase a refreshed version of this assessment (CTP4R) for use until the CTP5 is ready. This version will contain new items at most levels.  (Online testers will be using CTP4R automatically.)
 
Additional information will be available soon, but if you have questions in the meantime, please email CTPredesign@erblearn.org.

“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.”
