The assessment measures reading comprehension by asking students to read selected grade-appropriate materials and answer questions based on what they have read. The results present a broad view of students’ reading knowledge, skills, and performance over time.

CMS is holding a news conference on Tuesday, October 25 to go over its results and provide critical context to the numbers and how they are represented in the district. CMS will also highlight steps needed to bridge the learning gap created by the pandemic.
