Description

This White Paper was developed by the Administration, Accessibility, and Accommodations Task Management Team (AAA TMT) to provide the English Language Proficiency Assessment for the 21st Century (ELPA21) states with recommendations for ways to include their English language learners (ELLs) with the most significant cognitive disabilities in an assessment of their English language proficiency. The ELPA21 states are developing a college- and career-ready assessment of English language proficiency (ELP). This assessment is designed for all ELLs except those who have the most significant cognitive disabilities.
