The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) continues to prepare teachers to administer the Connecticut Alternate Assessment (CTAA) in English language arts and mathematics and the CMT/CAPT Skills Checklist Science to students identified with significant cognitive disabilities. Similar to last year, we are providing this required training to any teacher who has the primary responsibility for assessing students in Grades 3-8 and 11 on the CTAA and/or the CMT/CAPT Skills Checklist Science for students in Grades 5, 8 and 10. This training requirement does not apply to teachers who qualified in the 2014-15, or 2015-16 through CSDE Live or Online CTAA & CMT/CAPT Skills Checklist Science Training.
We are again providing two ways to access this required training. All registrants MUST provide their 10-digit Connecticut Educator Identification Number (EIN). You may look up your EIN by visiting: http://sdeportal.ct.gov/cecscreateuser/default.aspx (external link).
