Connecting Assessment to Instruction for Texas ELL Students

Run time: 56:30

Are your Spanish-speaking ELL students ready to transition from learning English to learning in English?

Because more than 90% of the one million Texas ELL students are Spanish-speakers, it’s no surprise this is on your mind. ELL students need to meet the same requirements as native English speakers for high school graduation, so it’s critical to distinguish between (a) TEKS students haven’t mastered, and (b) TEKS they’ve mastered in Spanish but cannot yet demonstrate in English.

But how do you get this information? And, more importantly, how do you act on it once you have it?

Watch this webinar for answers to these questions. You’ll discover:

  • How to efficiently assess ELL students in both English and Spanish
  • How to compare students’ performance at the same grade and English proficiency levels
  • How to best use assessment data to target instruction to each learner’s needs
  • How Renaissance Star Assessments® in English and Spanish give you a more complete picture on every student—no matter their starting point.
