Event description

Description


States are seeking innovative assessment models to replace outdated No Child Left Behind-era, high-stakes assessments based on Classical Test Theory (CTT) and Item Response Theory (IRT). The new Diagnostic Classification Model (DCM) utilizes breakthroughs in machine learning technology, psychometrics, and data analytics to change the landscape of assessment.

Join us at the DCM Innovative Assessment Summit to learn how this multi-dimensional psychometric model is a game-changer for understanding mastery of standards and personalizing learning in the classroom. You will also gain insight into how a reliable through-course model impacts formative data usage for teachers in the classroom.

Come hear from the world-renowned psychometrician and the industry leaders who have been pioneering this new approach.

DCM Summit Topics include:

  • The differences between IRT (uni-dimensional) and DCM (multi-dimensional) assessment and how the DCM model revolutionizes mastery and personalized approaches
  • The successful 2017 State of Kansas pilot of the Diagnostic Classification Model (DCM)
  • How your state or district can move from an end-of-level to a Reliable Through-Course Assessment Model


Your no-cost registration includes breakfast, a networking lunch, and parking at the event hotel.


“With a reliable DCM through-course assessment, we can get to the heart of what students know and don’t know, and give teachers the reliable and actionable data they need. IRT just can’t do that.”
— Dr. Jonathan Templin, University of Kansas
