AP Scores 2014

The College Board's Advanced Placement Program (AP) is an extensive program that offers high school students the chance to participate in college level classes, thereby broadening their intellectual horizons and preparing them for college work. It also plays a large part in the college admissions process, showing both a student's intellectual capacity and his or her genuine interest in learning. The program also allows students to earn college credit for high performance; many colleges award 3 credits for scores of 3 or above on various AP exams.

CAPT Scores 2013 - Data Analysis

The Connecticut Academic Performance Test (CAPT) began in the mid-90’s and is now in its third generation of development by Measurement Incorporated. Each March, in approximately 27 hours of testing, all of Connecticut’s 10th Graders read, compute, and write short-answers and essays in four content areas: Math, Reading, Writing, and Science. If students score in the top two bands, they are “At Goal or Above” and receive a sticker for their high school transcripts. If they score in the third band, they are considered “Proficient” and have met both Canton’s graduation requirements and NCLB expectations, but they do not receive the CAPT performance stickers from the State. Students scoring in the bottom two bands have not yet met Canton’s CAPT graduation requirements, and special programs are in place to help them meet this expectation.
