Updates from Teams


Assessment – Mieso

DARE has approved the proposal for the retesting study. DARE is also forming their own team to look into how we can possibly improve our assessment process.

Mieso will be looking into the retesting policy for DSPS students in regards to them not being given accommodations when they took their placement tests. He will also be researching what materials we can provide students to prep them for their assessments.

Update – Foothill has stopped giving De Anza students a new placement test after taking their test here. Some students are still slipping through and Mieso will look into this as well.
