    Parents: and Students:   These are the Spring 2018 state grade-level required assessments and the times and dates they will be administered.  The assessments are now better aligned for preparation toward college, career, and scholarships.  The SAT is one of the primary required national tests used by colleges and universities for admissions and scholarship eligibility decisions.  The state of Colorado uses the SAT as one of the measures to determine if an 11th grade student is on track academically by grade level.  The PSAT is the preparatory and aligned assessment for both 9th and 10th graders to prepare for taking the SAT in the 11th grade.  The state of Colorado uses the PSAT to determine if a 9th or 10th grade student is on track academically by grade level.   Juniors can also take the PSAT in the fall of their junior year to be considered for the National Merit Scholarship program.  The CMAS Science assessment is the required state assessment specifically designed to determine if an 11th grade student is at grade level in their Science learning.  The results of each test is one piece of data which helps us as a school determine proper student placement in courses, and in large scale – helps us determine if we are on track providing a high quality curriculum to all students.  We look forward to every student doing their absolute best on each assessment.
