Heads Up

Welcome to Heads Up, your one-stop source for news about your son’s upcoming activities and events.

Forms 4 and 6 ERB testing

Boys in Forms 4 and 6 will write the ERB standardized test titled the “Comprehensive Testing Program 4 (CTP4)” on Tuesday, Nov. 15 and Thursday, Nov. 17.

The main purpose for administering the CPT4 test is to gather information about the knowledge, skills and understanding of this year’s Form 4 and Form 6 group to help us further develop and strengthen our program. The CPT4, combined with other forms of assessment, can provide valuable information to help us meet the needs of our students. Many independent and international schools use this standardized test and find it to be a useful assessment tool.

Standardized test scores in isolation aren’t a measure of a student’s learning, ability or achievement levels. Although the test results will be used to support boys’ learning, these scores aren’t reflected in your son’s levels or report card. The results from the test provide us with some information about your son’s development.

Your son’s test scores will be sent home in January, keeping in mind that they’re more to inform the College of its program over time and that, for your son, the information is simply one piece of the assessment puzzle.
