English Language Learner Classification and Assessment: Tools & Resources

Saturday February 10, 2018
10:00 - 10:30 AM
Exhibitor Session Room A

Under changes in ESSA, many Title I schools and districts are now more actively involved with support and instruction of English language learner (ELL) students. WIDA at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has nurtured a membership for 39 state education agencies across the U.S. This session covers three primary parts of ELL education: 1) a description of the ELL identification, placement, assessment, and reclassification process, 2) information about WIDA Screener, a third-generation assessment tool for ELL identification and placement, and 3) details about WIDA resources available to assist with WIDA score interpretation.
