DCSD logo

In compliance with legislation, Colorado joined the CMAS consortia as a governing member in August, 2012. CMAS is a multi-state assessment consortium that is developing shared English language arts (ELA) and mathematics assessments. About 20 states participate in the consortium. As a governing member, Colorado is committed to relying on the CMAS assessment system. CMAS has ELA assessments in grades 3-11 and mathematics assessments in grades 3-8 with three high school assessments. CMAS has developed college and career ready determinations that will be based on the assessments given in 11th grade.
