The COVID-19 pandemic caused changes in instruction and assessment nationwide. These changes impact the defensible reporting of results. DLM staff explored several instruction and assessment scenarios. They examined how each scenario may inform decisions about scoring and reporting for the 2020-2021 year. Check out the project brief to learn more.


DLM staff explored the relationship between DLM academic achievement standards and postsecondary opportunities for students with significant cognitive disabilities.
The results of the study conducted in 2019-2020 found that students with significant cognitive disabilities who meet the DLM academic achievement standards have the academic skills necessary for pursing postsecondary education or competitive integrated employment.
A technical report outlining the study’s findings can be found here.
