Colorado Measures of Academic Success


Student Practice Resources

The sample items available in each resource provide students with an opportunity to become familiar with the format and functionality of questions that appear on the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) assessments. The resources include technology-enhanced items (TEls) which allow students to indicate their responses to assessment questions in a format other than multiple-choice. The resources are not intended to cover all content or TEl types included on operational assessments. Sample items also provide students the opportunity to use the tools available in TestNav 8, the online testing software used in Colorado. For ELA and math, the practice tests include individual units which together are representative of a complete test. For science and social studies, the sample item sets in the ePATs (Electronic Practice Assessment Tools) are not intended to be representative of a complete unit or test.
