NYSESLAT Administration & Scoring: K-12th Grade Speaking

February 26 @ 9:00 am - 10:30 am

All charter schools are mandated to administer the New York State English as a Second Language Achievement Test (NYSESLAT) annually to their MLL/ELL students. In this training, participants will learn the ins and outs of administering the NYSESLAT Speaking subtest and will have the opportunity to norm on scoring student oral responses using the state-published rubric.

By attending this session, attendees will leave with…
– An understanding of the legal mandates and logistics associated with administering the NYSESLAT
– An understanding of the NYSESLAT K-12th Grade Speaking rubric and how to use it to score student responses on the NYSESLAT
– The beginnings of a network of fellow MLL/ELL educators across NYC charter schools

Presenters: Melissa Katz & Jennifer Hall

**Note that attendees will only use ONE (1) ELL Compliance & Assessment (ECA) seat, even if they are attending multiple NYSESLAT administration and scoring sessions (for example, someone attending both 5-8 Grade Writing and K-12 Speaking would use only one ECA seat). ECA seat allotment is based on schools’ membership with The Collaborative for Inclusive Education:
Select/Core – 1 seat/semester
Enhanced – 2 seats/semester
Premier – 3 seats/semester
