Colorado’s standards-based state summative assessment system is designed to provide a picture of student performance to schools, districts, educators, parents, and the community. The purpose of the assessments is to indicate the degree to which students have mastered the Colorado Academic Standards (CAS) in mathematics, English language arts/literacy, and science at the end of the tested grade level and content area. CMAS results provide one measure of a student’s academic progress relative to the CAS.
