CMAS

Assessment Information

Wildcat Parents,

CMAS is a summative assessment that provides one measure of the degree to which students have mastered the Colorado Academic Standards at the end of each grade level. Arkansas will complete CMAS testing March 22 - April 12, for 3rd, 4th, and 5th-grade students. Remote families that wish for their students to complete CMAS should contact Kevin Daly at kjdaly@aurorak12.org or 303-755-0323.

Arkansas Elementary recognizes the disruption of COVID-19 to instruction and its relationship to unfinished learning for Arkansas students. We also understand how taking instructional time to administer 7-11hours of state-mandated tests, like CMAS, may not be the best educational priority for your student. Below is an outline of the CMAS tests students will take. In addition, should you as the parent choose to Opt-Out your student from this assessment it is imperative that you fill out and submit one of the electronic forms on this page.
