2016 NYSESLAT Information/2016 Turnkey Training

2016 School Administrator's Manual


There were 5 fundamental changes or shifts in 2015:



1. Measures CCLS and 5 New Language Arts (NLA) Progressions



2. Performance levels:


(The five levels:Entering, Emerging, Transitioning,


Expanding, and Commanding at which each student is identified by the NYSESLAT



to describe the student’s academic English language proficiency)



3. Integrated approach to modalities (R,W,L)



4. Text complexity:



Focuses on aspects of instruction


that students encounter in content-area classrooms





5. Instructionally relevant academic language:

The questions focus on the language and language structures

that support the content as opposed to the content itself
