READING ASSESSMENT
• Part 1: Short Passages
• This section tests the student’s ability to understand information in
short reading passages. Students read a passage with a word or words
that are missing and then choose the best word or words to fill in the
blank. There are one or more missing words in each passage.
• Part 2: Instructions
• This section tests the student’s ability to understand directions. There
is a different set of instructions for each question. For some directions,
the answer choices are samples of students’ work. The student will need
to identify which student followed the directions correctly.
• Part 3: Longer Passages
• This section tests the student’s ability to understand information in
longer reading passages. The student will answer several questions
about each passage.

WRITING ASSESSMENT
• Part 1: Open Ended
• Students write in English in response to prompts. The prompts may
include pictures that the students describe.
• Part 2: Revise and Edit
• Short “student-written” passages are used to give students a
nonthreatening opportunity to demonstrate English proficiency by
improving what appear to be sentences or passages written by their
peers. Students respond to 12 multiple-choice items and choose the
best answer to correct grammar and language usage errors in passages
or to add a topic or concluding sentence.
• Part 3: Graphic Organizers
• Students answer multiple-choice questions about graphic
organizers.

LISTENING ASSESSMENT
• Prior to administering the Listening assessment it is critical to:
•Read through the scripted administration directions that you are
expected to read to students.
•Make sure that the Listening CD is appropriate for the grade level
being assessed.
•Test both the CD player and the CD to ensure that the
prompting recording will be audible to all students. If the CD
player requires batteries, make sure that they will last the entire
assessment session.
•Place the CD player at a centrally located place in the room.Turn it on
and listen to it from each student’s seat. Are the prompts and timing
signals easily audible? If not, adjust the volume accordingly.
jpschools.org
LISTENING ASSESSMENT CONT.

restart.

The room must be free from outside noise from the hallway and
adjoining classrooms.
Students should be seated far enough apart so that they do not
distract one another.
All students and the test administrator must be able to hear what is on
the CD.
Students should not be seated at the same table or have the
opportunity to see one another’s answer folders.
jpschools.org

Speaking assessment will need to be administered individually.

before the administration to identify an appropriate volume setting.

ACCOMMODATIONS
•
Accommodations in administering ELDA are
allowable provided that they are specified in a
student’s IEP or 504 plan and used on a regular basis
in classroom instruction and assessment.
•
A student’s assessment results should reflect her or
his true ability and should not be influenced by
inappropriate accommodations.
•
ESL accommodations are NOT used for ELDA.
jpschools.org
ACCOMMODATIONS CONT.
• Extended/Adjusted Time: The ELDA Reading and Writing assessments
are untimed. For students whose attention span or behavior interferes with
regular testing sessions, test administration may be altered to allow for a
number of shorter testing sessions. Testing may also be stopped and
continued at a later time if behavior interferes with the testing session. The
time of day the test is administered may also be adjusted to benefit the
student. All testing sessions MUST be completed within the allotted testing
window. The Listening and Speaking assessments may be altered to allow for
shorter testing sessions, but the tapes may NOT be repeated.
• Assistive Technology: Students may use a computer to type their
responses instead of writing in the answer document. Spell check, glossaries,
grammar check, dictionaries, and thesauruses are not allowed on the ELDA.
Responses created on a word processor must be transferred to the
scorable answer document.
jpschools.org
HOW ARE TEST RESULTS USED?
• Consistent measurement of English language
development across our state and the other
participating states
• Individual student reports of performance in each
domain and a composite score to help determine
strengths and needs of our students.
• District/state level reports to help us see how we
are doing with our ELL students.
• Federal reporting (AMAOs)
