Colorado Measures of Academic Success

CMAS Fact Sheet.pdf

Meaningful and relevant tests work hand-in-hand with rigorous academic standards. The state’s tests, called the Colorado Measures of Academic Success, measure students’ mastery of the standards and the complex thinking and other critical skills students need to be successful in school and in life. A very small number of students with significant cognitive disabilities may take the Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM) as an alternate ELA/Math assessment based on the student's need in an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
