2 Introduction to the WIDA ELP Standards 2 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech

3 Introduction to the WIDA ELP Standards 3 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech Wisconsin (1) Delaware (2) District of Columbia (3) Rhode Island (4) Vermont (5) Maine (6) New Hampshire (7) Illinois (8) Alabama (9) New Jersey (10) Georgia (11) Oklahoma (12) Kentucky (13) North Dakota (14) Pennsylvania (15) Virginia (16) South Dakota (17) North Carolina (18) Mississippi (19) The WIDA Consortium 2008

4 Introduction to the WIDA ELP Standards 4 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech The Bottom Line In order for students to achieve academically and exhibit that learning on Large Scale, High Stakes assessment, they MUST master Academic Language.

5 Introduction to the WIDA ELP Standards 5 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech More on language proficiency vs content knowledge How many different ways can you read the following mathematical expression? 3+2= 

6 Introduction to the WIDA ELP Standards 6 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech Language versus Content Language proficiency involves the language associated with the content areas. Content knowledge reflects the declarative (what) and procedural knowledge (how) associated with the content. WIDA ELP standards focus on academic language; academic content standards focus on academic content.

7 Introduction to the WIDA ELP Standards 7 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech The Language of Math greater than[>] and less than[<] NOT 6 [>/<] 5

8 Introduction to the WIDA ELP Standards 8 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech The Language of Science

9 Introduction to the WIDA ELP Standards 9 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech Why are English language proficiency (ELP) standards necessary? To facilitate ELL students’ English proficiency attainment, access to content knowledge, and ultimately, their academic success To provide a curriculum/assessment resource anchored in academic content standards To establish a common yardstick to define and measure how ELLs acquire language across the domains of listening, speaking, reading, and writing To comply with federal law (No Child Left Behind Act of 2001) requiring ELP standards and ELP standards- based assessments

10 Introduction to the WIDA ELP Standards 10 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech Overall Organization of Standards Frameworks for Formative & Summative Assessment (2) English Language Proficiency Standards (5) Language Domains (4) Grade Level Clusters (5) Language Proficiency Levels (5) Model PIs are the lowest level of expression of the standards Model Performance Indicators

11 Introduction to the WIDA ELP Standards 11 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech Summative Is amenable to large- scale testing under standardized conditions Includes visual and graphic supports Contains model performance indicators that are observable and measurable Formative Corresponds to everyday classroom practice Includes visual, graphic, and interactive supports Contains model performance indicators that include strategies, technology, and long-term projects Two Standards Frameworks

12 Introduction to the WIDA ELP Standards 12 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech The Five WIDA ELP Standards Standard 1: English language learners communicate for SOCIAL AND INSTRUCTIONAL purposes within the school setting (SIL) Standard 2: English language learners communicate information, ideas, and concepts necessary for academic success in the content area of LANGUAGE ARTS (LoLA) Standard 3: English language learners communicate information, ideas, and concepts necessary for academic success in the content area of MATHEMATICS (LoMA) Standard 4: English language learners communicate information, ideas, and concepts necessary for academic success in the content area of SCIENCE (LoS) Standard 5: English language learners communicate information, ideas, and concepts necessary for academic success in the content area of SOCIAL STUDIES (LoSS)

13 Introduction to the WIDA ELP Standards 13 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech The Four Language Domains Listening Speaking Reading Writing

14 Introduction to the WIDA ELP Standards 14 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech The Grade-Level Clusters The 2007 WIDA ELP Standards are clustered: PreK−K Grades 1−2 Grades 3−5 Grades 6−8 Grades 9−12

18 Introduction to the WIDA ELP Standards 18 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech Another Way to Examine Performance by ELP Level

19 Introduction to the WIDA ELP Standards 19 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech The Elements of the MPI Model performance indicators consist of 3 elements: The Language Function The Content Stem or Sample Topic The Support or Strategy*

20 Introduction to the WIDA ELP Standards 20 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech A Model Performance Indicator Grade Level Cluster: 1-2 Domain: Speaking English Language Proficiency Standard 4: English language learners communicate information, ideas, and concepts necessary for academic success in the content area of SCIENCE.
