 Teachers after October 1, 2014 can complete the
PNP if the student is new or review previous PNP
for students

Student 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 Elements
 The Essential Elements should be compatible
with the curriculums delivered in districts for
students taking alternate assessments

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 at
http://dynamiclearningma
ps.org/kansas
There 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. This information
has live links so it can’t be
downloaded.

There 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 modules
 There are Required Test Administration modules
both self-directed and facilitate, there are 7
modules
Kansas State Department of Education

Dynamic 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 development
The Facilitated Test Administrative Training is located at
http://dynamiclearningmaps.org/kansas
All quizzes will be completed in the Educator Portal
A teacher has to do all the required modules and pass all the
test to administer the DLM assessment

Dynamic 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

DLM 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:
Instruction
 Then going into the Instructional Tool Interface often to complete

testlets, then continue instruction and completing testlets.
•
•
•
•
2014-2015 test all EEs at least once and get comfortable with the
Instructional Tool Interface
Some 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 year
Some EEs will have no testlet, so go back to those EEs in the winter
assessment window (C)

DLM Integrated Model
2014-2015
 Beginning 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 occurring
 This 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 students
 The Operational Testlets and End of Year assessment will
be used for the Students State Assessment score in
2014-2015
Kansas State Department of Education
www.ksde.org
DLM Integrated Model
2014-2015
 As teachers use the Instructional Tool Interface
they are creating many data points for each
student across the school year with the
operational testlets
 These 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 in 2014-2015
 This type of assessment will also show the growth
of the student across the year
Kansas State Department of Education
www.ksde.org
DLM Integrated Model
 The first mandatory test window (B) will begin
on November 10-December 20
 When 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.
Kansas State Department of Education

DLM 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.

Field Tests
Kansas State Department of Education
www.ksde.org
DLM Field Tests
 There will be 3 Field Tests and Kansas teachers
can volunteer their participation of students
 DLM 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!

DLM Field Tests (Volunteer)
 October 13-31 – Field Test A
 November 10-December 20 – Field Test B
 January 5–March 6 - Field Test C
Please volunteer we need your help!

KANSAS IEP Goals
 New Kansas power points for writing Standard
Based IEP goals for student taking an
alternate/DLM assessment have been posted
on the http://www.ksdetasn.org/ webpage
(Standard Based IEP goals aren’t required but are best
practice)
 Remember if a student takes an alternate
assessment all goals must have objectives or
benchmarks
