Pause on 2020-21 and 2021-22 State Accountability System Due to COVID-19

A second year of Accountability Pause (2021-2022) has been authorized by the Colorado legislature. The state's accountability system has been paused for 2020-21 and 2021-22. More details on the implications of a pause in accountability are available in the links below.


This analysis forms the basis for the remainder of the UIP.  Successful analysis includes organizing relevant data from local and state sources. Within this section, you will complete an analysis that helps summarize current performance, identify trends within that data and prioritize areas of focus (Performance challenges).

Data for Performance Data Analysis

A wide range of data could be included in this analysis including local and state level achievement and growth, early learning measures, promotion, dropout, and graduation rates, behavior and discipline as well as some process related data such as surveys.  State level data sources are accessible on the CDE website.

The CDE has also compiled two reference documents providing basic guidance for using local assessment data from iReady or NWEA MAP:
