This indicator reports the total number and percentage of tests taken by 4th grade students which met or exceeded the performance goal on the Smarter Balanced English Language Arts Assessment.
The Smarter Balanced English/Language Arts Assessment measures proficiency in reading, writing, listening and research. Note that Smarter Balanced replaces Connecticut’s previous assessment, the Connecticut Mastery Test. This assessment is also presented in this report in lieu of 4th Graders Reading at Grade Level, which is no longer assessed separately.
