Each spring, Friends School administers the Educational Records Bureau’s Comprehensive Testing Program – version 4 to students in grades 3-8. The CTP4 is a rigorous, standardized test that provides us with important, nationally normed data. It is one among many important data points that help us assess individual student learning and our overall curriculum. The scores from this test are included in your student’s academic records and are available for parent/guardian review as soon as they are returned to the school. The ERB CTP4 is significantly more challenging than the End of Grade (EOG) tests administered by the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction and we are proud of the student accomplishments which it reflects.
