State Mandated Testing

CMAS (Colorado Measures of Academic Success) & CoAlt

 

CMAS and CoAlt are the assessments that are mandated by the Colorado Department of Education.  CMAS is given to our 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th graders. All 3rd-6th students take the Math and English Language Arts assessments. Additionally,  5th grade takes a science assessment, and some schools are also chosen to also take the 4th grade social studies assessment. 

2020 Update:

Administration of the CMAS (all content areas) and CoAlt (science and social studies) assessments has been paused for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year due to extensive school closures throughout Colorado to prevent the spread of COVID-19. If you have any questions regarding state testing, please contact Kirsten.Sola@dcsdk12.org.
