What is the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS)?

All public school students enrolled in Colorado are required by state law to take a standards-based summative assessment each year in the specified content areas and grade levels. This means that every student, regardless of language background or ability, must be provided with the opportunity to demonstrate their content knowledge. The Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) is Colorado’s standardsbased assessment designed to measure the Colorado Academic Standards (CAS). A very small number of students with significant cognitive disabilities may take the Colorado Alternate (CoAlt) assessment based on the Extended Evidence Outcomes (EEOs) of the CAS. The CMAS and CoAlt assessments are collaboratively developed by the Colorado Department of Education, the Colorado educator community, and Colorado’s assessment contractor, Pearson. The data should be used to keep abreast of individual student, school, and district progress toward attaining higher student achievement levels.
