Lincoln Basset Community School is one of the great schools in New Haven area. Principle and teacher of this school are great.

Posted August 27, 2003

Lincoln Bassett has my son reading, writing, and arithmetic skill well over average. The classrooms are just too large, but he was able to learn because his teacher pushed him to learn.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Connecticut used the Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) to test students' skills in reading, writing and math in grades 3 through 8, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The CMT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Connecticut.
Beginning in the 2009-2010 school year, the Connecticut Department of Education implemented new definitions of what it means to be proficient on the CMT test. The new standards for proficiency are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change.
