    The question types in the CMAS Test include

    Constructed Response Tasks that require students to explain, justify, critique, create, propose, produce, design, or otherwise demonstrate knowledge and understanding by generating a response when appropriate, context is provided to reinforce students’ practical applications of concepts, theories, principles, and processes.
    Technology enhanced items and tasks incorporate computer interfaces to ask questions and pose scenarios that are not possible in traditional paper-based formats. they also present conventional items in fresh, innovative ways that motivate students. technology-enhanced items may require students to generate their responses, or they may present students with a wider and more complex set of answer options. These include Drag & drop, Highlight text, Table fill in, Matching table, etc
    Multiple Item Types provides evidence needed to support inferences about student achievement.

    Keymaster

    The CMAS testing window for Mathematics is between April 8 – 26, 2019 while for ELA, the tests will begin as early as March 18, 2019.

    Districts that need more time to complete math and ELA testing due to limited device numbers can expand the math/ELA test window and begin testing those content areas earlier for CMAS. The maximum test window for ELA and math will be five weeks in 2019. The extended window is ONLY for online math and ELA and ONLY districts with limited device capacity are eligible to participate in the extended window which is as follows:

    3 weeks (science, social studies, ELA and math): April 8 – April 26, 2019

    4 weeks (additional week only for ELA and math): April 1 – April 26, 2019

    5 weeks (additional weeks only for ELA and math): March 25 – April 26, 2019 or March 18 – March 22, 2019 and April 1 – April 26, 2019

    While ACT Aspire does not measure all of Common Core standards, all of the skills and knowledge measured by ACT Aspire are aligned with and reportable to the standards. The ACT Aspire is designed to measure the skills of the students on the College and Career readiness standards.

    In 10th grade, the last year the ACT Aspire is given, the maximum score is 460. In grades 8–10, your results will include a composite score, which is just the average of the scores you got on the English, Math, Reading, and Science sections of the test. Meanwhile, the Writing section is scored separately

    Students in Grade 6 and above can use calculators. (a calculator tool is available on the cBt version.) For Grades 3–5, direct evidence of students executing important computational skills, practices, and understandings is required, so calculators are not permitted.

    The performance levels for ACT Aspire are:

    The Student assessment is done at 4 levels. These are Needs support, Close, Ready and Exceeding.

    Exceeding: students demonstrate superior performance beyond proficient grade-level performance. They can apply skills to solve complex problems and complete demanding tasks on their own. They are able to make connections between abstract and concrete ideas and provide proper explanations and arguments to support their answers.

    Ready: students demonstrate Good academic performance and are well prepared for the next level of schooling. They can use learned skills and knowledge to solve problems and complete tasks on their own.

    Close: students demonstrate partial knowledge and lack skills necessary for the proficient level.

    Needs support: students fail to show sufficient skills to attain the basic level and need additional support.
