The Comprehensive Testing Program (CTP) is a rigorous assessment for students in Grades 1-11 covering reading, listening, vocabulary, writing, mathematics, and science. Verbal and quantitative reasoning subtests are part of the CTP beginning in Grade 3. The CTP helps educators assess content specific, curriculum-based performance alongside reasoning ability and conceptual knowledge.
Compare student performance and growth against similar students via national, independent, international, association, and district norms.
Quickly purchase assessments and manage test administrations online via our dedicated Comprehensives Portal, with support always available from the ERB experts.

“The kids loved doing the tests online...the teachers were able to establish friendliness with the tests; the reports…are accessible, and we are already ‘curricularizing’ what we’ve derived from the kids’ performance. Thank you so much for guiding us through the process.”

For educators seeking additional flexibility, including homeschoolers or classes engaged in distance learning, we are pleased to offer CTP At Home. This new option lets you securely assess your students' learning progress from home, keeping them (and you) safe and academically on-track.
CTP was designed to meet every classroom's needs with flexible online or paper administrations. Test students individually, in small groups, or as whole classes–with CTP, it's easy to set up test administrations on-demand.
With CTP, you can choose which subtests to implement to measure what matters without overburdening students. It's now easier than ever to check in with your students academically, with the same rigor and reliability you expect from ERB.
The ERB Support Support Center is on call to support you in scheduling test administrations, interpreting reports, and more. We can help make the assessment process stress-free so you can focus on what's most important: your students.
Take your testing program to the next level with Milestone Assessments, the new complement to CTP. These short interim assessments let you track progress across the school year - leading up to or after CTP - for more targeted interventions and better curriculum design.
