Our goal in this WIDA Focus Bulletin is to provide suggestions for effective practices in supporting and instructing young DLLs.
This WIDA Focus Bulletin explores different ways for “growing” oral language while supporting early literacy development of DLLs.
The purpose of the E-ELD standards is to provide a developmentally sound Framework for instructing and assessing dual language learners, ages 2.5–5.5 years, which aligns with existing WIDA ELD Standards for Kindergarten through Grade 12 and corresponds to states’ Early Learning Standards. The E-ELD standards, in conjunction with the K–12 ELD standards, will provide WIDA Consortium states a consistent and congruent Framework from early preschool through 12th grade.
This report addresses three primary questions:
1. How do you determine a meaningful English language performance standard?
2. How do you establish a realistic, empirically anchored time frame for attaining a given ELP performance standard?
3. How can states take into account English learners’ English language performance level when setting academic progress and proficiency expectations?
This document gives a summary of the ACCESS for ELLs assessment and its purpose.
The WIDA Accessibility and Accommodations Framework consists of the application of effective linguistic scaffolding and Universal Design principles to the development of test items, use of administrative considerations and purposeful design and delivery of universal tools and accommodations.
Are you looking for an interim ELP assessment to predict student performance on ACCESS for ELLs? This flyer provides information on why you should try WIDA MODEL.
The aim of the Interpretive Guide is to assist stakeholders in understanding the scores reported for WIDA Screener test takers.
This WIDA Focus Bulletin explores some ideas of how teachers can support ELs so they can use language for various purposes in the area of English Language Arts (ELA).
