2Students need a test record in KIDS so they will be registered for DLM by October 1, 2014 Teachers after October 1, 2014 can complete the First Contact Survey if the student is new or review previously completed surveys (don’t forget to hit the submit button when finished!).Teachers after October 1, 2014 can complete the PNP if the student is new or review previous PNP for students
3Student Participation Students taking an alternate assessment will need to start working on essential elements in kindergarten so the students will have the skills to meet the higher expectations of the Kansas College and Career Essential ElementsThe Essential Elements should be compatible with the curriculums delivered in districts for students taking alternate assessments
4Materials Teachers will Need All information at -Participation GuidelinesDLM English Language Arts Integrated Assessment Model BlueprintDLM Mathematics Integrated Assessment Model BlueprintAnd the Tested Essential Elements on the Educator Resource page, they have live links, so can’t be downloaded.
5ResourcesAll testing information is at the new DLM website atThen, go to assessments at the top of the page and in the drop down, menu click on operational testingThen, go to the bottom of the page to select states and choose KansasRemember Teachers are called Test Administrators
6Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM) NOW, Teachers need to pick their Essential Elements (EEs, which are links to the standards) for their students found on the DLM Kansas page :DLM English Language Arts Integrated Assessment Model BlueprintDLM Mathematics Integrated Assessment Model BlueprintAfter picking the EEs then teachers can organize their classroom and begin instructionTeachers will enter the chosen EEs into DLM Educator Portal starting November 10
7Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM) The First Contact Survey determines the Linkage Level that will be delivered to the student when the student enters the assessment.Each EE and the nodes at each linkage level are on the Educator Recourse page atThere are 5 linkage levels:then go to Tested Essential Elements and click on the EE you are choosing and you will see what is on the next slide.

9Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM) There are two Essential Elements documents posted at DLMThe complete essential document (all grade, all EEs) to find them go to Learning Maps tab at the top of the page, then on the learning maps page go to the right side of the page and you will see the complete Essential Elements documents at dynamiclearningmaps.orgThe second set of essential elements documents are the TESTED essential elements documents and they are found at the bottom Educator Resource page
10There are two kinds of modules in DLM – Dynamic Learning MapsThere are two kinds of modules in DLM –There are Professional Development modules for instruction both self-directed and facilitated, when finished there will be about 50 modulesThere are Required Test Administration modules both self-directed and facilitate, there are 7 modules
11Dynamic Learning Maps NOW There is required test administration training for test administrators (teachers) with a test at the end of each module to learn how to give the assessment -The self-directed Test Administrative Training is in the Educator Portal under professional developmentThe Facilitated Test Administrative Training is located atAll quizzes will be completed in the Educator PortalA teacher has to do all the required modules and pass all the test to administer the DLM assessment
12Dynamic Learning Maps Who may be a Test Administrator? A person that completes all the Required Test Administrative training.A paraprofessional can be a Test Administrator as long as they have completed the training.The Required Test Administrative training is available now on Dynamic Learning Maps in the Educator Portal
14DLM Integrated Model When thinking of DLM we have to think of it as a formative process, the assessment is a year long process that will involve:InstructionThen going into the Instructional Tool Interface often to complete testlets, then continue instruction and completing testlets.test all EEs at least once and get comfortable with the Instructional Tool InterfaceSome EEs will have testlets that have FT on the testlet and that means it is a field test item and that is fine, use them!Some testlets will just be there and those are operational testlets and will be used in the students final assessment score this yearSome EEs will have no testlet, so go back to those EEs in the winter assessment window (C)
15DLM Integrated ModelBeginning On November 10, 2014 teachers will be able to go into DLM and have access to the testlets to assess their students as instruction is occurringThis year the integrated model uses the operational testlets in the Instructional Tools Interface as part of the students State Assessment Score – this is a year that teachers can explore and get used to using the Instructional Tools Interface often with their studentsThe Operational Testlets and End of Year assessment will be used for the Students State Assessment score in
16DLM Integrated ModelAs teachers use the Instructional Tool Interface they are creating many data points for each student across the school year with the operational testletsThese many data points, plus a small End of Year Assessment over the EEs that were chosen for that student will be the students State Assessment Score for the year starting inThis type of assessment will also show the growth of the student across the year
17DLM Integrated ModelThe first mandatory test window (B) will begin on November 10-December 20When the window opens the teacher will register the EEs they chose for the student.Then they can begin using testlet that go with their chosen EEs.The second mandatory test window (C) is January 5-March 16.
18DLM Integrated Model End of year testing date is – March 16 – May 15 The End of Year Test will be a re-assessment of 5 EEs for ELA and 5 EEs in Math. The assessment will randomly select 5 EEs out of the total number of EEs chosen for the student and will use those 5 EEs to assess the student on in the small End of Year Assessment.
20DLM Field TestsThere will be 3 Field Tests and Kansas teachers can volunteer their participation of studentsDLM still has 6,000 items they need to field test this year so participation will be appreciated!When teachers go into the Instructional Tool Interface and use testlets they might see “FT” on some testlets and those are Field Test testlets, use them!

22KANSAS IEP GoalsNew Kansas power points for writing Standard Based IEP goals for student taking an alternate/DLM assessment have been posted on the webpage(Standard Based IEP goals aren’t required but are bestpractice)Remember if a student takes an alternate assessment all goals must have objectives or benchmarks
