Starting October tenth, we’ll lead district teams in creating growth measures in traditionally untested subjects. There is limited space for these free workshops, email firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a place. We’ll focus on the Arts, one of the areas required for piloting in the 2013-14 school year. Read more about these workshops here: Arts DDM Workshop.
To assist districts in completing the DDM September Reporting Template, we supply state-approved language for the untested subjects row. This language will serve as a place-holder for the growth measure that district teams create. You can access it here: Approved Language for Arts DDM
