2015 NYSESLAT Information

http://www.p12.nysed.gov/assessment/nyseslat/home.html

  

There are 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
