Statewide Student Assessments (2014)

Education & School Finance (Pre & K-12)

Assessments provide teachers, parents, students, policymakers, and other stakeholders in Colorado's education system with a way of measuring student performance against state standards. First administered on a statewide basis in 1997 under the name Colorado Student Assessment Program (CSAP), statewide assessments are designed to provide measurements of students' academic progress and are used to evaluate the effectiveness of teachers, administrators, schools, and districts.
