with important
feedback on the
overall strength of
curriculum

Provides the parent
with solid information
about their child’s
performance
 Provides the school
with a school,
independent, and
national comparison
What does it mean?
Standardized tests
provide the school
another important
piece of data that we
can use to plan
effectively for each
student’s K-12
experience.

ERB CTP 4

What is CTP?

The Comprehensive Testing Program (CTP) is a
rigorous assessment of student achievement of
essential standards and learning domains for
grades 1-11 in English language arts and
mathematics. Verbal and Quantitative Reasoning
tests are included for grades 3-11. CTP is
available in the traditional paper-pencil version
(CTP 4) and an online version (CTP Online).
ERB/WrAP

What is WrAP?
 The Writing Assessment Program (WrAP) stands
apart from nearly every other available writing
assessment. Unlike other instruments that provide
only holistic scoring indices, the WrAP is scored
analytically. Developed in collaboration with our
member schools and Measurement, Inc., WrAP
uses a six-trait, six-point rubric to provide
information that can help target instruction in
writing.
ERB/WrAP
Features and Benefits of WrAP
WrAP provides unmatched results through:
 Direct measure of student writing based on a standardized prompt provided by
ERB.
 Evaluation by two writing experts, including grammar and writing
conventions.
 Five levels of testing, with varying modes of discourse and scoring standards.
These developmentally appropriate sequences align with classroom practice
from Grades 3 through 12
TESTING LEVEL MODE OF DISCOURSE
 Intermediate (Grades 5–6) Informative/Descriptive
 Middle (Grades 7– 8) Expository
NAEP Grade 8 (only 2011)

The National Assessment of Educational
Progress (NAEP) is the largest nationally
representative and continuing assessment of
what America's students know and can do in
various subject areas. Assessments are
conducted periodically in mathematics,
reading, science, writing, the arts, civics,
economics, geography, and U.S. history.
