“Meaningful and relevant tests work hand-in-hand with rigorous academic standards. The state’s … tests, called the Colorado Measures of Academic Success, measure students’ mastery of the standards and the complex thinking and other critical skills students need to be successful in school and in life.” –CDE Website
This spring, third- through ninth-graders will be taking the CMAS tests that are aligned to Colorado Academic Standards. Our 10th and 11th graders will be taking the PSAT 10 and SAT, respectively.
The materials in this link from CDE help families further understand the assessments and information available to them. You’ll find sample score reports, frequently asked questions, sample questions, and more information about the role of state assessments in increasing student achievement.
