Progress on English Language Proficiency
The English Language Proficiency Assessments measure development across the English Language Development Standards (read more here) on the WIDA ACCESS assessment. English Language Learners are students receiving support for English as a second language. The Progress on English Language Proficiency rate shows the percentage of students who met their expected growth standard. Students who have English Language Proficiency Assessment scores from either 2019 or 2020 can show growth to be included in the 2021 Progress on English Language Proficiency rate.

English Language Progress Over Time
What does this mean?
Having a Progress on English language proficiency rate shows whether English Language Learners are growing their ability to read, write, and speak English across different school years. 2020 data is not shown, because testing was interrupted by school closures.
Why is this important?
Progress on English language proficiency trends allow us to see whether schools or districts are seeing improvements to English language proficiency over time.
