The Cohort approach to measuring growth in student achievement looks at the progress of a group of students as they advance through school. This section analyzes whether Hartford Public Schools are able to increase student performance from Grade 3 to Grade 8, and which grades and subjects see the greatest gains and challenges. The Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) and Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) were last administered in 2013. These tests will be replaced by the Smarter Balanced Assessment in Spring 2015. The data on this website will be updated once it is available after these tests are administered.
How Fast are Hartford Students Progressing? - This mini-report analyzes the pace of growth that cohorts of students within, and between, schools make as they move from 3rd to 8th grade.
