CELDT Laws and Regulations Local education agencies (LEAs) administer test of English proficiency in modalities of listening, speaking, reading, writing to: 1. new students whose primary language is not English 2. students who are English learners based on annual assessments
Primary Home Language Determinations LEAs make a primary home language determination for all students in kindergarten through grade twelve upon first enrollment in California public schools Once established, primary language can only be re- determined if results disputed by parent/guardian only Determined by home language survey
Purposes of the CELDT Identify pupils who are ELs Determine the level of English language proficiency of pupils who are ELs Assess the progress of EL pupils in acquiring the skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing
Uses of CELDT Results Initial Assessment Annual Assessment Accountability: Calculate annual measurable achievement objectives (AMAOs 1 and 2) which classifies ELs into three categories: English Learners, Initial Fluent Proficient, RFEP (Initially identified as ELs, but later meet English proficiency requirements)
Accountability AMAOs for EL students are as follows: AMAO 1- Annual progress in learning English based on CELDT performance AMAO 2: Attaining English proficiency on CELDT
Accountability (cont.) AMAO 3: Meeting Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) for the EL subgroup at the LEA level on the California Standards Test (CST), California Modified Assessment (CMA), California Alternate Performance Assessment (CAPA); California High School Exit Examination (CAHSEE)
