Framework for High-Quality English Language Proficiency Standards and Assessments

Produced by Assessment and Accountability Comprehensive Center

Description

Prepared by the Assessment and Accountability Comprehensive Center (AACC) at WestEd, the Framework for High-Quality English Language Proficiency Standards and Assessments provides criteria for developing, implementing, and evaluating high-quality English language proficiency (ELP) standards and assessments that support English learners’ attainment of English language proficiency and achievement of academic content.

Intended for state departments of education and their partners, the Framework presents criteria and a structure that build on the best available research and practice from a number of relevant disciplines. The critical information and practical worksheets included the Framework facilitates necessary cross-disciplinary collaboration as states either engage in an evaluation of their existing ELP standards and assessments or work to ensure effective development and implementation of their ELP standards and assessments.

In addition to the full Framework, an introductory brief and one-page overview are available.
