Since January 2001, the CSDE has used the Connecticut Administrator Test (CAT) to assess candidates seeking certification endorsement in Intermediate Administration and Supervision (092). Candidates have been required to pass the CAT before they are recommended for certification by an administrator preparation program.

Effective November 2018, the CSDE transitioned from the current CAT to a new version of an Administrator assessment, specifically the Educational Leadership Administration and Supervision (ELAS) test, developed by the Educational Testing Service (ETS). The new CAT aligns with the 2015 Professional Standards for Educational Leadership (PSEL) and the 2017 National Educational Leadership Preparation (NELP) Standards.
