CMAS Performance Level Descriptors

Performance Level Descriptors (PLDs) provide details about the specific grade-level content area concepts and skills typically demonstrated by students within a CMAS performance level.



The 2020 Colorado Academic Standards in science were tested for the first time during the spring 2022 administration. Scale scores, used to determine a student’s performance level for the overall assessment, will be determined in the future, in part based on student performance on the 2022 test. Science PLDs will be determined at that time.
