CMAS Social Studies Schools 2016-17

CDE has identified the DPS schools that will administer social studies this year:  View the list of schools here.
- If your school is not on this list, you will not administer social studies this year however you still must administer English language arts and math for grades 3-9 and science for Grades 5, 8 and 11.
- High schools will not administer CMAS: Social Studies in 2017 as previously planned. Colorado will be using the 2016-2017 school year to investigate the possibility of using the SAT Analysis in History/Social Studies subscore as the Colorado HS social studies indicator.

 

CMAS ELA Field Test Schools 2016-17

CDE has identified the sampling set of DPS schools that will participate in a field test as part of their CMAS PARCC English Language Arts testing this spring. View the list of schools here.

For students in selected schools and grades, the ELA field test will constitute an additional ELA unit.  Refer to Appendix G: ELA Field Test Instructions in the PARCC Test Coordinator Manual for details on this additional unit.

Similar to last year, schools that were selected to participate in the social studies sample this year were not selected to participate in the ELA field test. Please contact Rochanda Jackson with questions.
