Spring 2021

In spring 2021, Colorado's third- through eighth-graders took CMAS assessments. Given the challenges created by COVID, the state legislature and U.S. Department of Education reduced the number of tests students were required to take in spring 2021. Students were only required to take one test in either English language arts (ELA) or math, depending on their grade, but parents could choose to have children take both tests if they wanted to see how their children were progressing in both subject areas. Students in grades three, five, and seven took ELA assessments; students in grades four, six, and eight took math assessments; and students in grade eight also took science assessments. The grade 5 and high school science and grades four and seven social studies assessments were not administered.
