I haven't had a chance to analyze them, but it appears that Bristol students did well on last spring's CAPT tests.
The fourth and seventh grade classes posted particularly solid gains in every subject (math, reading and writing).
Only third graders, who saw math and writing scores sink, failed to show overall improvement.
Of course, details matter so we'll know more as the results are broken down by race, sex, individual schools and more. At first glance, though, it looks good for Bristol.
