Assessments supporting Colorado Sample Instructional Units from SLVBOCES

The San Luis Valley BOCES has had teams of teachers developing assessments that are aligned in may cases with the sample instructional units that have been developed in Colorado.  SLVBOCES would like to be able to share these with any interested Colorado teachers but to do so and to maintain a secure access to the assessments teachers must first have an account in the Colorado PLN- see http://www.coloradoplc.org/ and then request access to the SLVBOCES Group at http://www.coloradoplc.org/slvplc.

Please create an account in the Colorado PLN and be sure to list your district or organization and please use you district email account. If you already have an account in the PLN just contact Karen Ortiz, Dan Morris or Teresa Yohon to be added to the SLVBOCES group.
