Assessments and Metrics

Knowledge Quest Academy (KQA) uses a variety of formal and informal assessments and progress monitoring tools to measure student learning and readiness to better plan for indvidual student needs. Some of the formal assessment programs we use include:

  • CMAS (Colorado Measures of Academic Success) * Please note that KQA utilizes the paper and pencil format for the state math assessment. See policy below. 
  • DIBLES (Dynamic Indicators of Basic Early Literacy Skills)
  • STAR Early Literacy
  • NWEA Math, Reading, and Writing



Knowledge Quest Academy students will use the paper/pencil format to complete the math sections of the state assessments. This policy has been developed by the KQA Board, consisting of parents, and applies to the Colorado Measures of Academic Success (CMAS) math assessments. (Policy Adopted 2015)

 To provide classroom support to students who would benefit from personalized attention, KQA relies on the following types of professionals:

  • Intervention specialist
  • Multi Tiered Systems of Support Team/Student Intervention Team (MTSS/SIT)
  • English Language Learner (ELL) instructional specialist
