Reading

The authors discuss the challenges of assessing English Language Proficiency (ELP) in ways that are aligned with the Common Core State Standards (CCSS), and then make recommendations for developers of the next generation ELP assessments. They identify challenges around three sets of related issues: 1) Identifying language knowledge and skills in the CCSS, 2) Defining alignment in the context of ELP assessments, and 3) Articulating a new ELP standards framework that can guide states in their development of next generation ELP standards and assessments.
