Assessments Overview

CMAS: Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) are the system of statewide tests in English language arts, math, science and social studies that are given to all Colorado students in grades three through high school. At SkyView, we administer CMAS assessments in grades 3 – 8, and 11. Additional information about state testing can be found on the Colorado Department of Education website.

SAT and PSAT: The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. The Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test (PSAT) is a series of standardized tests (PSAT 9/10 and PSAT/NMSQT) that helps measure readiness for college, access scholarships, and practice for the SAT. For more information about the SAT or PSAT, please visit the College Board website.
