With a little help from my son, whose Excel education far exceeds my own, I graphed Bristol's CAPT test score trends since the new generation of the test went into effect at the turn of the century. It clearly shows that this year's results are a big step up from the normal ups and downs, proving either that the schools are doing something right or that there were some especially bright sophomores this time around.
Anyway, take a look at the numbers and the graph of Bristol sophomores meeting the state CAPT goals each year: GRAPH (PDF)
