CoAlt: Dynamic Learning Maps

The Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM) Alternate Assessment program is designed to measure what students with significant cognitive disabilities know and can do.

Colorado has joined the Dynamic Learning Maps (DLM) alternate assessment consortium. DLM is a multiple-state consortium that is developing a computer-delivered alternate assessment. The DLM assessment program is designed for students in grades 3 through 11 with significant cognitive disabilities for whom, the general education assessments, even with accommodations, are not appropriate. DLM end of the year assessments replace the previous CoAlt assessments in the content areas of English Language Arts and Mathematics.

Extended Evidence Outcomes
Students who qualify for alternate assessments require extensive, direct instruction and substantial supports. They are learning academic content aligned to grade level content standards, but reduced depth, breadth, and complexity. These standards are call the Extended Evidence Outcomes (EEOs) of the Colorado Academic Standards. Colorado's EEOs were the State Board of Education unanimously adopted on August 3, 2011.
