CRCT Testing Brief 2013-2014

Catoosa County Public Schools (CCPS) participates in all state-required assessments. For the school year 2013-2014, Georgia required all schools to participate in the Georgia Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT) and the Georgia End-of-Course Tests (EOCT's). Alternate assessments for student with disabilities who meet specific eligibility criteria include the Criterion-Referenced Competency Tests - Modified (CRCT-M) and the Georgia Alternate Assessment (GAA).

Subject areas assessed with the CRCT include Reading, Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies for grades three through eight. According to Georgia law (O.C.G.A. Sections 20-2-282 through 20-2-285), no third grade student will be promoted to the fourth grade if the students does not achieve grade level performance on the third grade CRCT in Reading and no fifth or eighth grade student will be promoted to the next grade if the student does not achieve grade level performance on the CRCT in Reading and Mathematics. Students in grades 1 and 2 did not participate in the CRCT due to state-level budgetary constraints.
