**Correction to PowerPoint notes regarding scoring on slide 17 - The fine print at the bottom of the scoring document should read "Last stage of mastery", not "Highest or Lowest stage at which all 8 items are correct." This is very important because the stage in which a student gets all the answers correct before missing any in the next stage is where you want to score a student. The incorrect responses in the next stage may reveal an easily corrected misconception.
IKAN downloadable assessment videos 1 - 4:
**When downloading videos, use the mp4 versions instead of the flash versions.
**Do not pause of stop when using the videos because they are intentionally timed.
