Dynamic Learning Maps Update, Review of assessment plan for K-5

Educators review the developing learning map

 

Kansas City, Mo. — Members of the Dynamic Learning Maps Alternate Assessment Consortium (DLM) held the first Learning Map Educator Panel Review September 29th–30th in Kansas City, Mo. The meeting was an important milestone in the development of the Dynamic Learning Maps Alternate Assessment System (DLM-AAS), as invited educators had their first look at the learning maps for grades K–5.

The two-day event gave expert educators from consortium member states an opportunity to review and give feedback on the first iteration of the learning maps developed by the Center for Educational Testing and Evaluation (CETE). Participants organized into groups according to grade-level and reviewed maps in both English Language Arts and mathematics. The groups were then asked to give feedback on the learning maps in categories such as grade-level appropriateness and cognitive complexity, relationship to the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and node properties.

Terri Portice, representing Michigan, felt the review put the project in much clearer terms.

“In April the task we were given was huge,” she said. “Now we have seen where they (CETE) are at and how organized it is. I was excited when I left here in April; now I am thrilled about where the project is in September.”

The learning maps review process will continue in January for grades 6–12. Two additional reviews are also scheduled for May and August 2012.
