CMAS tests are the only common measuring tool for students in the tested grades in Colorado and the PSAT and SAT are the only common tests taken by high school students. Participation is important because results help students, parents, schools and districts understand whether students have mastered the content they need to know by the end of the school year and are on track to be ready for college or career after graduation. PSAT and SAT results are available on student College Board accounts at https://www.collegeboard.
Parents can use test scores to see how their students and schools are doing compared to other students and schools across the district and the state. Schools and districts can use test results to make improvements to instruction or to develop additional support and enrichment for students who need more help mastering the standards.
