State Testing FAQs

Participation counts! We encourage everyone to test.

Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) include tests in Science and Social Studies, and tests in Mathematics and English Language Arts based in part on content originally developed by the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers consortium.  The PSAT 9, PSAT 10, and SAT, developed by the College Board, are required as well.
