Benchmark – annual elp and academic assessments | TSL 565
Each year, ELL/bilingual students are assessed with state-mandated standardized assessments. These annual assessments can include an annual ELP assessment to measure English language development, including academic English. Other assessments may include norm-referenced assessments measuring content knowledge in areas such as reading and math.
ELL/bilingual specialists are often called on to be test administrators and possess knowledge of which students can be exempt from certain assessments and who can receive specific accommodations.
