Assessment Information

CDTs

In the fall, winter, and spring, students take an online test called the Classroom Diagnostic Tool (CDT) in Math, Language Arts, and Science. It is a tool that helps teachers know where the students are academically and helps them plan for the best instruction possible for our students. The CDT is similar to the Study Island benchmark and ALEKS benchmark that we have used in the past. While results of the CDT will not be part of your student’s marking period grade, we want students to try their best so that we can provide individualized instruction in areas in which they can grow.

For more information about the CDT, please visit The CDT site and click on Parent Resources.
