Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) is Colorado’s standards-based assessment designed to measure the Colorado Academic Standards (CAS). CMAS indicates the degree to which students have mastered the expectations of the CAS in each content area at the end of the tested grade level. CMAS results provide one measure of a student’s academic progress relative to the CAS.

CMAS tests in four content areas:

  • English language arts/literacy (ELA)
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Studies*

*CDE does not plan to administer social studies assessments in spring 2024.
