Below you will find links to the descriptions and find out why we take CMAS and ACCESS:

CMAS: https://www.sd27j.org/Page/9338

ACCESS: https://www.sd27j.org/Page/9340

CoGAT: Students in 2nd grade take this assessment which is a very good early identifier of gifted talents within students. It also gives us very good information to provide interventions to students who may need additional scaffolding with instruction.

Note: Dates are subject to change based on early testing window (for CMAS) and times are subject to change for ACCESS and CMAS.
