The DAC resources and trainings webpage was created to be specific to DACs and their needs. The trainings on this page pertain to the overall DAC position, not a specific assessment. The resources found on this particular web page are also general resources for DACs to assist them in navigating their role and responsibilities. DACs may choose to share occasional resources with their schools and districts if appropriate (such as the sample parent letter about an upcoming assessment.)
This resource provides information for district and school leaders to consider when identifying student needs, planning instruction and monitoring student learning.
The purpose of this manual is to help schools effectively implement online assessments. This document is designed for use by all individuals involved in implementing assessments including classroom teachers, District Assessment Coordinators, School Assessment Coordinators, District Technology Specialists, etc. It will be up to the school to determine the best person to use this manual. It is not meant to be exhaustive. This is a guide for considerations of resources, accessibility, staffing, scheduling, and various other issues that will arise in implementing the state assessments.
This 2-page overview provides DACs with a brief overview of the Assessment and Accountability web pages, our communication processes, and some resources that will aid you in your position.
