Spring Assessment Information

 

Colorado is assessing 9th and 10th-grade students using the PSAT 8/9 and PSAT 10. This will help them prepare for the SAT their junior year, which is not only a state-mandated, national test required for some college/university entrance and some scholarship programs, but it is also one of the options to meet the Colorado graduation requirements beginning with the class of 2021 (see page 13 of our handbook for more information). Once students take the PSAT, they will be able to use online resources with College Board and Khan Academy to get free, personalized help and practice for the SAT. These assessments are now better aligned to prepare students for college and careers by measuring their academic readiness and growth at each grade level.

 

The CMAS Science assessment is required by the state of Colorado to specifically determine if an 11th-grade student is at grade level in their science learning. We also use this data to help drive our instruction.

 

The ASVAB is a multiple-aptitude battery test that measures developed abilities and helps predict future academic and occupational success. Later this spring, we will have time for the students to review their results and learn about possible career paths that they will most likely enjoy. While the military uses this assessment as a part of their entrance requirements, NO scores from this administration will be released to the military.  This will also be an opportunity for the Class of 2021 and beyond to meet the graduation requirements set by the State of Colorado and explore potential career fields.

 

In general, all standardized assessments implemented are data-points our school will use to determine our effectiveness and how we can better serve our students. These scores help us determine student readiness for classroom assignments and course-placement as well as college readiness.

 

We are very proud of our students for scoring the top in the district in years past, and we look forward to them continuing to perform their best this year!
