How English Language Learners are Evaluated

ยท Licensed ENL Teachers administer a test of listening, speaking, reading and writing skills of ELLs using the New York State English as a Second Language Achievement Test (NYSESLAT).

o This test determines whether or not the student continues to be eligible for ENL services. Both standardized assessment and alternate assessment students participate in the NYSESLAT every year.

o All ELLs who have not yet scored proficient on the NYSESLAT participate in this assessment.
