Strengthen outcomes for emerging bilinguals
Title III funds are used to improve the language proficiency and academic achievement of emerging bilinguals and for activities that increase the knowledge and skills of their teachers. Language instruction education programs offered to these students must be driven by data on their unique needs. Star assessments offer the only side-by-side English and Spanish comparisons of students’ skills, allowing you to determine whether their performance reflects a language issue, a content issue, or both—and plan instruction accordingly. Star CBM Lectura is a 1:1 assessment to reflect students’ literacy development in Spanish, a key predictor of English language decoding, spelling, phonological awareness, and comprehension skills.
