Mathematics Materials Collections for Instructionally Embedded States

Spring 2023 Assessment Window: Instructionally Embedded Model

Download the Mathematics Materials Collections List for Instructionally Embedded States (pdf)

Dynamic Learning Maps® (DLM®) testlets sometimes call for the use of specific materials. The Testlet Information Page (TIP) for each testlet identifies these materials. Sometimes materials are required and cannot be substituted, but substitutions are allowed in most cases. If a testlet requires materials, the TIP will state the specific materials mentioned in the testlet and describe their attributes so that test administrators can find appropriate substitutions. For more information about substituting materials, see the Test Administration Manual sections titled Teacher-Administered Testlets and Prepare to Administer a Testlet.

The TIP is provided in the Instruction and Assessment Planner in Kite® Educator Portal when each testlet is assigned. Since the teacher chooses which Essential Elements and linkage levels to assess during instructionally embedded assessments, the materials needed or recommended to assess each student are unknown before the testlet is assigned. However, the materials used in different testlets often have common traits, giving teachers the ability to identify commonly available objects ahead of time that are likely to be useful when administering mathematics testlets. Teachers may collect these materials and use them during instruction. The most useful materials are familiar to the student and available before the teacher begins assigning testlets in the Instruction and Assessment Planner.

The following list contains commonly needed materials in mathematics testlets and gives test administrators more opportunity to prepare for the mathematics alternate assessment prior to the opening of the assessment window. The tables in this document summarize lists of materials per grade level for general testlets and, where appropriate, for students who are blind or have visual impairments.

Materials may be substituted unless the TIP specifically states, “No substitutions allowed.”


Hints for using this list:
  • Look at the whole list for each grade and find materials that can meet multiple purposes. Note the types of materials mentioned more than once.
  • Find materials that already exist in the classroom or are easily found in the school building.
  • Pick materials that are familiar to the student.
  • Remember that in most cases, materials can be substituted if they have the same attributes as those on the list. Examples of substitutions are found in Table 1.
  • Materials substitutions are listed for individual testlets on the corresponding TIP.
  • The student’s safety should be the primary concern when choosing materials or substitutions.

Example Materials Description Possible Solution
Two sets of identical objects packaged together (packs of crayons, pencils, and markers). Two identical packs of flash cards.
Two objects that are the same size, and one object that is smaller than the other two. Two flash cards that are the same size and a smaller playing card.
