2017 State Test Results and What to Expect this School Year

This past spring, third- through ninth-graders in Colorado took the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) tests that are aligned to the Colorado Academic Standards. Colorado's 10th-graders took the PSAT for the second year and 11th-graders took the SAT in April for the first time. The state-level results for these tests were made available in August 2017. In addition, schools and districts received their preliminary accountability reports or School and District Performance Frameworks in late August 2017. Communications materials provided on this webpage can help parents better understand what the test results mean and how they can be used to support their student's academic success.
