Preparing for CTP assessment

The purpose of CTP 4 and CTP Online is to assess student growth and performance at the time of testing. This enables the school to identify strengths and weaknesses on an individual and group level. CTP is considered a “low stakes” assessment, intended to help teachers and administrators make decisions about curriculum and classroom instruction.

 

Because of this, there are no test preparation materials available for the CTP assessment. It is designed to assess what students know and not their ability to identify the probable right answer. Used in this way, the CTP serves as a diagnostic tool and helps yield reliable results.

 

Parent Guides are available for schools through the CTP portal which may be distributed to families receiving CTP parent reports. ERB provides customized parent programs to support schools in explaining CTP reports to parents. If your school is interested in hosting a parent program, please contact your ERB Consultant for more information.

 

Parents should direct any questions they have in reference to their student taking the CTP to their school. The CTP is administered by the school and makes all decisions on test schedules, modality (online vs. paper), and reports.

 

Understanding Lexile and Quantile Scores

Your school may utilize Lexile and Quantile scores. A Lexile measure represents your child’s reading ability and can be used to match him or her with books and other materials at an appropriate difficulty level. A Quantile measure describes your child’s mathematical ability and can be used to determine his or her readiness to learn new mathematical skills and concepts.
