  1. 2018 DMAC Academy

    DMAC is user-friendly, dynamic and ever-changing based on requests from Texas educators. Each day will highlight new features in the software as well as provide you with tips and tricks for using it efficiently at your school. The DMAC Academy will provide an opportunity for hands-on experience of the different applications within DMAC Solutions and how they can be used to:

    • disaggregate data
    • manage local assessments
    • track student achievement
    • monitor progress, plus much more!

    Each day of the Academy will focus on a different audience and different applications. Participants can register for one, two or all three days of the Academy.

    Day 1 – DMAC for Administrators, Counselors and Campus Staff

    • During this training, participants will learn how to utilize the pieces of DMAC specifically designed for Administrators, Counselors, Testing Coordinators, Interventionists and other campus or district staff members. We’ll share tips and tricks highlighting relevant reports to analyze, trend, and compare STAAR and TELPAS data along with how to generate reports related to accountability measures. We will also show you how to create and report on local assessments (aligned to STAAR, AP or ELPS standards), develop campus and district plans and other useful ways to utilize DMAC to its full potential.

    Day 2—DMAC for Teachers

    • During this training, teachers will learn how to access data in DMAC quickly and efficiently in order to locate their students and help improve instruction in the classroom. We will demonstrate how to create quality local assessments aligned to STAAR standards using the TAG test item bank and show you how to effortlessly analyze your results by establishing the 1-click reports using the Teacher Dashboards in TEKScore.

    Day 3 – Creating Student Plans & Documentation in DMAC

    • With DMAC, Teachers and Administrators can quickly find students, access their state and local assessment history and make adjustments to plans, record notes or attach file and forms. All data seamlessly travels with the student as they advance from grade to grade or change campuses. This training is all about student data. With web-based applications such as Student Portfolio, LPAC, RtI, PGP and SSI, users can easily create digital documentation for individual students. Batch features are also available for certain pieces allowing you to modify more than one plan at one time.
