This year there will be three windows for DLM.
Window 3 is the same as it has been for the last two years. This window is adaptive and the computer chooses the Essential Elements (EE).
The Essential Elements for window 3 are chosen from the EEs assessed in windows 1 and 2.
When choosing the Essential Elements in the Instructional Tool Interface (ITI) the teacher must follow the ELA and Math blueprint. When teachers do not follow the blueprint the students' scores suffer.
The ITI open September 21, 2016.
Teachers may assess more EEs in Window 1, but they may not assess less EEs.
