• Illuminate DnA is an online assessment and reporting program. Within DnA, teachers can create, share, and give pre-created assessments. Students can fill out printed answer sheets or take the assessments online.  Reports are automatically generated from these assessments. Additionally, historical assessment data (from state sources, from vendor sources, for example) will be available for further reporting. This helps our educators to better inform instruction. Teachers can engage in the data driven instruction cycle individually and collaboratively in grade-level and/or subject teams.  Aligning formative assessments to common core state standards and creating common assessments are supported and easily administered with DnA.
