4  A test for newly enrolled English Language Learners  Helps inform placement decisions  For new students whose home language is not English  Administered within 30 days of registration or 15 days of enrollment  Not a substitute for the annual IELA

5  Individually administered  25–35 minutes per student  Assesses general proficiency in Speaking/Listening, Reading, and Writing

6

7 Each test is divided into three sections, or subtests:  Speaking/Listening  Reading  Writing

8  1 Record Form (consumable)  1 Writing Response Sheet (consumable)  1 Prompt Book (reusable)  2 pencils (1 for Examiner, 1 for student)  A stopwatch  An Examiner Manual (reusable)

9  Examiner script  Individual items  Scoring instructions/rubrics  Space to record student’s score

10  Space for student to record responses  Some prompts  Multiple-choice grammar items

11  Illustrations and printed prompts for the Speaking/Listening and Reading subtests

12

13  Administer the Fluency task of the Reading subtest  Student reads passage out loud  Examiner calculates correct words per minute

14  Flip Chart Prompt Book contains both student prompts and Examiner script  Reusable — Do not mark Prompt Book  Mark scores in Record Form only

15

16  Quiet one-to-one environment  Examiner sits close enough to point to student material  Position student so Examiner can both point and mark scores easily

17  Try to put student at ease  May speak in student’s native language  Explain what is going to happen

18  Follow the script  Do not rephrase a question  Do not give additional prompts  Exceptions If student answers in a language other than English, Examiner says, “Can you say that in English?” or, “Can you tell me in English?” If a student fails to answer in a complete sentence when that is indicated, Examiner says, “Can you say that in a complete sentence?”

19  “English only” is the rule  The student’s ability to understand directions in English is part of the assessment  No test items may be translated into the student’s native language

20  In general, questions are not repeated, however… You may always repeat a question if there was a distraction Some questions are marked for repetition once at the student’s request. For these questions, if the student appears hesitant, you may say, “Would you like me to repeat the question?”

21  Oral responses are scored during the test  Written responses are scored after the test

22 Write item score here Maximum points per item Acceptable response guidelines

23

24  Results are reported at three proficiency levels: Beginning Intermediate Advanced These levels do not (and should not) correspond directly to the Spring IELA proficiency levels

25  In grades K–5 different cut scores are reported for each season (Fall and Spring) and each grade  In grades 6–12 there is only one set of cut scores for each season (Fall and Spring) by grade span, rather than grade

26  Identification Students who receive an Overall score below the Advanced level most likely need to be placed in a language development program Examiner should review scores of each subtest for students who receive an Overall score at the Advanced level

27  Placement A student who scores Advanced overall but lower on one or more subtest most likely will need services to increase language proficiency in that area
