Assessments made easy
A new online assessment tool developed by School Leadership, Information Technology and Evaluation and Assessment will make monitoring student progress easier.
The new districtwide assessment platform—Dallas Assessment Navigator (Powered by School City)—will be used to administer and score district assessments online. The system eventually will allow for more teacher collaboration and provide easily accessible data so schools can make necessary changes to improve student outcomes.
It will also help students get used to taking assessments online as the State of Texas of Academic Readiness, or STAAR, will continue to shift away from paper assessments.
District assessments will be available through the new platform, which will be on Clever and accessed through the single sign on.
The Dallas Assessment Navigator also allows users to easily create a variety of other assessments. Students may take assessments online in the student portal. The platform can be integrated with most learning management systems as well as Google Classroom, so teacher generated assessments and reports can be launched right from the digital classrooms.
Training sessions for teachers to learn the new platform will be available in the coming weeks. To access Dallas Assessment Navigator, visit dallasisd.schoolcity.com and log in with EAD Credentials.
