ELPAC: The ELPAC Results Are In—Now What? Modules 8 through 10 Now Available
ELPAC email update, November 10, 2021.
Dear California Educator:
Announcing the English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) Results Are In—Now What? Connecting Assessment to Instruction virtual workshops. Modules 8 through 10 are now available.
The modules demonstrate how to use ELPAC data to advance English language proficiency through high-leverage instructional sequences tied to ELPAC task types. Viewers will learn to use a protocol that links three ELPAC task types to robust classroom instruction, which can be used to create ELPAC-like assessments and instructional sequences in context. Video clips, student work, and reflections from the implementation of these practices with English learner (EL) students will be shared.
The modules are intended for educators, including classroom teachers, coaches, teachers on special assignment, and administrators who play a role in supporting high-quality instruction for EL students in the classroom. The modules are designed for local facilitation in small teams but are also accessible as stand-alone learning experiences. Educators can select topics based on their prior knowledge and experience.
