On March 17, 2020 Colorado Department of Education announced a pause on end-of-the-year state assessments.
Assessment & Program Evaluation
Student Assessment and Program Evaluation is responsible for coordinating the collection and reporting of achievement data; designing and conducting evaluations of district programs; and screening research proposals from outside the district.
The department coordinates state-mandated testing, district assessments and survey administration. In addition to supporting schools in continuous improvement planning and accountability, the staff provides consultation and training to BVSD personnel in test administration, development, scoring and reporting, questionnaire construction, evaluation, design, and various other aspects of the collection, analysis and interpretation of data.
Governor Polis issued an executive order pausing all state and federal accountability systems for the 2020-2021 school year.
Colorado plans to offer seniors in public schools free SAT tests on a school day next fall.
Assessments must help us learn about our students. What do they need to learn? What kind of learners are they? What are their strengths?
