SUBJECT: Assessment of Basic Skills for Younger Youth under the Workforce Investment Act (WIA) Effective July 1, 2001

America's Workforce Network

Purpose:  To extend and continue the policy regarding the use of the Connecticut Mastery Test (CMT) and the Connecticut Competency System (CCS) for the testing and assessment of basic skills for younger youth (14-18) under WIA, effective through PY 2001-02.

Policy:  WIBs who are experiencing delays or other operational problems associated with the use of the CMT in the assessment of basic skills for younger youth may use the CCS.  The CCS may be used for determining eligibility, establishing baseline scores for basic skills to set annual goals for each youth, and measuring goal attainment for the WIA program year ending June 30, 2002.

Test score equivalents below which youth are deficient in basic skills are as follows:

  1. for the CCS, a score below 235 in either reading or math is deficient.

  2. for the CMT, scores below 64 for reading and 130 for math is deficient.

Any questions may be directed to your area representative.
