Pennsylvania educators will now have new student level data to assist them in supporting the adequate growth of English Learners for attainment of English Language proficiency on time. Join this session to learn more about the new PVAAS ACCESS for ELLs student level projections. These include a student’s historical data on ACCESS to ELLs in the areas of speaking, listening, reading, writing and the composite. These data bring a new longitudinal lens for looking at student progress toward English Language Proficiency. You will hear how these new student level projections, when coupled with multiple sources of other student data, can help to address learning gaps and keep the focus on both the achievement and growth of English Learners.
Participants will gain an understanding of the role of PVAAS projections to ACCESS for ELLs with other data sources in
determining students’ trends in working towards English language proficiency, overall and in the individual domains of listening, speaking, reading and writing;
assessing students’ future trajectory of reaching English language proficiency; and
developing and setting goals with students for working towards and achieving English language proficiency.
This session will support educators in ensuring that English Learners are on a path to success. There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion in this session.
