1
Alaskas English Language Proficiency Standards
2005
Alaska Department of Education Early
Development February 8, 2006
2
English Language Proficiency Standards
  • Serve as guidepost for curriculum, instruction,
    and assessment of English language acquisition,
  • Outline the developmental stages of English
    language acquisition, and
  • Align with academic content standards to offer
    opportunities for continuity of learning.

3
Alaskas ELP 2004 Standards
  • Developed by committee in 2003 to meet NCLB
    requirement
  • Based on former TESOL standards
  • Four domains listening, speaking, reading
    writing
  • Included social goals as well as academic goals

4
ELP 2004 Standards
  • Drafted by committee of educators and
    administrators with experience in ESL
  • Draft reviewed by larger committee in November,
    2003
  • State Board adopted in March, 2004

5
AK ELP Assessment Selection
  • Alaska joined the Mountain West Assessment
    Consortium (MWAC), (10 states) in spring of 2003
    to begin development of ELP Assessment
  • The MWAC assessment delivered to EED in December
    2004
  • No responsive proposals received to RFP to
    implement MWAC ELP assessment.
  • EED issued an RFP July 29, 2005 for proposals to
    implement an existing NCLB compliant ELP
    assessment.

6
State Approved Assessment
  • State selected Pearson Educational Measurement
    (PEM) and Ballard Tighe to implement statewide
    the IDEA Proficiency Test (IPT) beginning March,
    2006.
  • NCLB compliant
  • consistency across the State
  • useful data at all levels

7
Review of ELP 2004 Standards Needed
  • Newly adopted Alaska grade level expectations in
    content areas
  • Extensive ELP standards development by other
    states and consortia
  • TESOL standards under revision

8
Research Other Standards
  • Teachers of English to Speakers of Other
    Languages (TESOL), Inc.
  • World-class Instructional Design and Assessment
    (WIDA) Consortium standards
  • North Carolina, Indiana, Utah, Colorado, and
    Virginia state standards
  • Academic English A Conceptual Framework, Robin
    Scarcella

2005 ELP Standards Committee
  • Recruitment of Committee
  • 12 stakeholders around state
  • 9 of the 12 took part in the creation or review
    of the 2004 ELP Standards
  • Objective of Committee
  • Review revise ELP Standards before alignment
    study with IPT assessment
  • Level of appropriateness
  • Assessable for large scale
  • Coherence across grade spans and domains
  • Demonstrate through the GLEs linked to science,
    math, language content standards.

Highlights of ELP Standards 2005
11
Four Guiding Standards
  • One (Listening) The learner will comprehend
    spoken English in a variety of personal, social,
    and academic contexts within the school setting.
  • Two (Speaking) The learner will communicate in
    appropriate spoken English in a variety of
    personal, social, and academic contexts within
    the school setting.
  • Three (Reading) The learner will comprehend
    written English in personal, social and academic
    contexts within the school setting.
  • Four (Writing) The learner will communicate in
    appropriate written English in a variety of
    personal, social, and academic contexts within
    the school setting.

12
Grade Spans
  • Kindergarten There is increasing accountability
    for learning at early school years. By describing
    the English language acquisition process for
    young students, Alaska provides an overall
    comprehensive program for assessment.
  • Grades 1-2 English language learners in primary
    grades are becoming acclimated to the demands of
    school and are acquiring a foundation in
    literacy. TESOL suggests 1-3 grades.
  • Grades 3-5 By middle elementary school years,
    students are focused on complexity and depth
    within the content areas through literacy.
  • Grades 6-8 This grade span was not changed
    middle school brings on a unique set of
    challenges for English Language Learners.
  • Grades 9-12 This grade span was not changed
    this span outlines the language of academic
    success necessary by the end of secondary
    schooling.

Level of Appropriateness
All levels maintain consistency throughout the
grade spans with some developmental growth.

Assessable Indicators
Skill or knowledge oriented
ask, respond, express
Restate, summarize, describe
17
Coherence (to be logically connected)
Depth and complexity increases

Locally Assessed Standards
  • Some standards are coded with (L) to indicate
    that teachers should assess those standards at
    the local classroom level
  • RBH.1-2. 1 Demonstrate one-to-one correspondence
    of spoken and printed words with modeling and
    prompting (follow along when text is read aloud).
    (L)

Relationship to 2004 Standards
Same indicator on both ELP Standards

Connecting Standards Assessment to Instruction
  • Student level reports will indicate proficiency
    level in each domain of speaking, listening,
    reading, and writing
  • Class school reports will indicate of
    students at each proficiency level and in each
    domain
  • Teachers use standards at each proficiency level
    to determine where to focus instruction to
    maximize learning for each student
