MOY Assessment Cont'd...

DLI follows the above with these changes :

  • K-5 DLI teachers will all do DRAs and EDLs ONLY on learners being monitored through RTI.
  • You will not have a place in AWARE to enter any literacy screener info, but please keep the writing screener and iStation scores in your records.
  • Keep your English writing samples handy because you will be loading these into Elevation for ELs.

Please remember - We are asking that Math Screeners are completed and loaded into AWARE by January 19th.
