Elementary Grading & Reporting Handbook Update

Page 27

E. District/Curriculum Common Assessments (DCA) These are summative assessments developed by District Curriculum Teams to measure student mastery of the taught learning standards (TEKS) during each grading period. A grade is taken on these assessments. DCA’s fall under the Reteach/Redo provisions. DCA’s should be modified according to a student’s IEP as determined by an ARD committee. Parents may view the District/Curriculum Common Assessments at their child’s school upon request. These assessments need to remain on campus to measure progress on an annual basis in a valid manner. The assessment and data should be reviewed with the student at completion of the scoring process.
