CTP IV-ERB 2008 National Test Results for Wilshire Private School for Grades 4th
Along with many other independent schools, Wilshire Private School does not take
the usual state mandated standardized tests, opting instead for the CTP IV-ERB.
The ERB is a much more rigorous standardized test that measures Wilshire Private
School against other independent schools in the nation. This higher level of measurement
ensures that WPS students are measured against the achievement of other independent
school students. Consequently, the ERB is a much more challenging exam and a more
accurate measurement of students' skills. General scores are available in the main
office to be used as indicators of the high quality of WPS students.
