District Learning Assessments
In 2013, Katy ISD began administering District Learning Assessments (DLAs). DLAs are common formative assessments designed to gather evidence of student learning. As part of a balanced assessment program, DLAs are not intended to be the sole assessment instrument in determining student learning, rather they provide teachers and students with diagnostic information to help guide the learning process. During the past two years of implementation, the District has gathered feedback from parents, campus and district staff which will inform future assessment practices. This information will be shared with the District Assessment Council this Spring to make recommendations for improving and enhancing the District’s balanced assessment program.
Additional information about the DLAs can be found in the District Learning Assessment FAQs and in the District Learning Assessment Guidelines.
