Annual Assessment of ELLs

  • Assessment processes must align to the academic standards and PA ELPS.
  • The annual state ELP assessment of ELLs is required by federal law.
  • The State ELP assessment must be administered annually to measure progress and/or attainment of the student’s English language proficiency for each language domain, i.e., reading, writing, speaking and listening/understanding. These score results are maintained in the student’s permanent record folder.
  • The PSSA accommodations allowable for ELLs are published annually by PDE .
