Computer Based Assessments
As part of District 49's Learning Services department, the Ed Tech team provides support for computer based assessments, ensuring the technical readiness of online assessment platforms. In partnership with Colorado Computer Support, a contracted IT service company, the Ed Tech team helps with testing and verifying the technologies and the supporting infrastructure used during assessments. Computer Lab and device audits are conducted prior to the test windows for state mandated assessments such as CMAS (Colorado Measures of Academic Standards).
In addition to support for CMAS, the Ed Tech Team provides support for other assessment and progress monitoring platforms such as WIDA ACCESS for english language learners, ACT Aspire, Math and Reading Inventory by HMH (formerly Scholastic), AimsWeb Plus, and KITE-DLM for students with severe cognitive disabilities.
