2022-23 Instructionally Embedded Window: Year-End Model

The 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 may find appropriate substitutions. For more information about substituting materials, see the TEST ADMINISTRATION MANUAL sections titled Prepare to Administer a Testlet and Teacher-Administered Testlets.

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. This gives teachers the ability to identify some 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. That way, the most useful materials are familiar to the student and available before the teacher begins assigning testlets in the Instruction and Assessment Planner.

To give test administrators more opportunities to prepare for the mathematics alternate assessment prior to the opening of the assessment window, DLM staff have compiled a list of materials commonly needed in mathematics testlets. 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 as long as they have the same attributes as those on the list. Examples of possible substitutions are found in the table below.
  • Materials substitutions are listed for individual testlets on the corresponding TIP.
  • First and foremost, your 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). Use two identical packs of flash cards.
Two objects that are the same size, and one object that is smaller than the other two. Use two flash cards that are the same size and a smaller playing card.


Contained in this document:
  • Lists by grade of materials commonly used in mathematics testlets
  • Lists by grade of materials that may be used to administer testlets to students who are blind or have visual impairments. Some mathematics testlets are special forms designed for students who are blind or have visual impairments, while others are general testlets that have been adapted to make them more accessible.
