Are you concerned about the upcoming assessment testing?

A message from our Superintendent:†
Dr.†DeLay†addresses parent assessment concerns

Colorado Measures of Academic Success FACTS

CMAS†coming up soon

Next week our students will begin taking our state tests in English, math, science and social studies, called the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS). †

As with past years, the tests will be divided into sections that will be administered over several days. Students are not being tested for any lengthier time frame than in past years, schools must spread the tests out over a longer time frame based on computer availability. †There are simply not enough computers to have every student testing at the same time. †The English Language Arts and Math tests will be taken in two blocks. The first block is given earlier because it contains more writing tasks that must be hand graded, and that will take more time. †The second block will be given at the end of the school year, and it can be completely scored by computers.†

Your childís participation is important! The results will help you know how your son or daughter is performing and growing over time and how that compares to his/her peers. You deserve to know!

Strong participation is critical for our teachers and administrators to understand if our school is doing all it can to help our students prepare for success in college, career and life.

If you havenít already, I encourage you to take a look at the practice tests available through the Colorado Department of Educationís website at†http://www.cde.state.co.us/assessment/CMASPracticeTest.

If youíd like to learn more about the new standards or tests,†CDE†has a number of additional resources on its website at†http://www.cde.state.co.us/communications/resourcesforparents.
