Fact Sheets for Families

These fact sheets are designed to help districts communicate with families about the results of Colorado's 2022 state assessments. 

Role of State Assessments 

Colorado Growth Model

 A decade ago, the state created the Colorado Growth Model to look specifically at how individual students progress from year to year based on the state standards. 

Score Reports

Score reports are given to every student, showing how they did on the previous spring's assessments and how that compares to the state, school and district. These fact sheets help explain to families how to interpret the score reports and use them to help their students improve.


The PSAT and SAT exams, taken by Colorado’s ninth-, 10th- and 11th-graders, are aligned to the Colorado Academic Standards and offer free, high-quality practice tools and scholarship opportunities. Ninth-graders and 10th-graders take the PSAT and 11th-graders take the SAT as the state college-entrance exam.
