We are excited to bring another member of the Discovery Education family of products to our DEN community. All STAR Discovery Educators can have access to Discovery Education ThinkLink Assessment (DETA) for the entire 2007-2008 school year. DETA, born at Vanderbilt University, helps teachers meet the needs of all learners through predictive formative assessments that give teachers the information they need when they need it. Proven in thousands of schools, DETA provides:
- teacher reports with accurate student proficiency and mastery predictions
- practice tests
- instructional resources
- NCLB subgroup reporting
- professional development
To learn more about DETA, join us for a webinar with Donna Neblett on Thursday, April 5 at 6:30 PM EST.

Also, check out the Assessment Blog. This blog will focus on practical and creative ways to utilize formative assessment strategies, along with media (like unitedstreaming) and other technologies (such as DETA) to help meet the demands of today’s classrooms.
And, if you are interested in having your whole school test DETA for the rest of this school year we will set up the first 50 STARs who let us know.
To set up your individual account or for the whole-school trial, contact Donna Neblett (firstname.lastname@example.org) and type “STAR DE Access” in the subject line.
