CSAP / TCAP - Frameworks and Fact Sheets

Beginning 2011-12

New 2011 Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) Frameworks define what will be assessed on the state's standardized, timed assessment. They are the "DNA of the test." Each item on the TCAP is developed to measure a single test objective. Test objectives are measured in a cyclical basis through an annual refreshment of items and text-passages.

Continuity of the test results between years within the same grade and between grades (vertical scale) is maintained using both an "anchoring" of items within tests and shared items between grades.
