Assessment Unit Overview

Oversees the administration of standardized testing.

The Colorado Academic Standards provide clear expectations of what students need to know and be able to do at the end of each grade level to graduate college and career ready. Meaningful, timely and precise measures of student learning – assessments - provide critical data and feedback to determine whether educational goals are being met. Colorado assessments are changing in order to accurately assess student mastery relative to the Colorado Academic Standards.
