CMAS/CoAlt Family Resources

The Colorado Department of Education (CDE) annually implements state tests called the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS). The CMAS English language arts (ELA) and math tests were developed in collaboration with a consortium of states known as PARCC (the Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Career). CMAS Science and Social Studies assessments were developed specifically for Colorado to measure proficiency of the Colorado Academic Standards.

Parents of students who take the CMAS assessments receive individual student reports for their child's assessments. The resources below can provide assistance as you are looking at these results.
