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.
