Florida's English language learners move toward language proficiency

from Tampa Bay Times

When they first arrive in the country, children who don't speak English aren't required to take the usual battery of Florida's standardized tests. Rather, they sit for assessments to gauge their English proficiency after time spent learning the language. They take ACCESS for ELLs, which replaced the Comprehensive English Language Learning Assessment. The Florida Department of Education has released the latest results for 259,414 children who took that exam, which measures their listening, reading, writing and speaking skills. Overall, 43,425 students — or 17 percent — were deemed proficient in all areas, with the highest levels of proficiency coming in the fourth and fifth grades. more
