The Montana Comprehensive Assessment System (MontCAS) supports a balanced approach to student assessment comprised of:

• Summative Assessments - provide an overall measure of students' educational goals

• Interim assessments - benchmark student achievement throughout the year

• Formative assessments - give teachers the ability to adjust teaching and learning strategies in the classroom
