Assessment Resource Bank


As Colorado implements the Colorado Academic Standards (CAS) it is important to have assessments that align to those standards. Colorado educators have identified hundreds of assessments and developed and tested over 30 additional performance assessments tied to the CAS or to the Career and Technical Education Pathways. Additionally, these educators have created an Assessment Review Tool that you can use to evaluate the rigor and alignment to the CAS of your district's assessments.

Performance Assessment Development Process

To support school districts in their development of performance assessments, CDE has developed a four-step performance assessment development process to help a school district, BOCES, or school create assessments for culminating assessment purposes (such as for a unit, end of course, or end of semester).
