Information for Parents

Dynamic Learning Maps® assessments offer students with significant cognitive disabilities a way to show what they know and can do. Assessments are based on a map that shows different paths a student might take to learn new academic skills. Learn more about testlets and view sample testlets on the Released Testlets page.

More information about Dynamic Learning Maps assessments is available in our parent brochure.

Information to help interpret Score Reports for the 2015-16 school year is included in the Parent Interpretive Guide

You can also learn a great deal more information about the Dynamic Learning Maps project on the professional development site, which is facilitated by our partners at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  This site includes 50 instructional modules, a variety of instructional resources including books you can read with your child, writing tools if your child cannot use a standard pencil or computer keyboard, and communication supports if your child struggles to use speech to communicate. There is also a virtual community of practice you can join to interact with other families and post questions to the Dynamic Learning Maps professional development team.
