State Testing Cancelled for 2019-20

CDE announced a pause on administration of end-of-the-year assessments including the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS). There will be no CMAS assessments administered for the 2019-20 school year. This means CDE will also pause its school and district state accountability system.

CDE is currently working with The College Board to generate possible solutions for the administration of the PSAT and SAT tests. Click here to view CDE’s news release.
