    Hey Lance,
    I’m loving playing with DESC. Do you have District pricing for 164 schools? Regarding the interface: I see that students can currently take the assessments multiple times and the last score shows up. Is that controllable within the assessment management piece?

    As for pricing, I can connect with you with the sales team but they certainly do district-wide pricing. For the assessment question, students can take the assessment multiple times and within the teacher’s account those multiple attempts with their associated scores are recorded. Hope that helps.
