                     Why CELDT?

• Identify new students who are English Learners
• Determine proficiency level in English
• Assess progress in acquiring the skills of listening,
  speaking, reading and writing in English each year
• NCLB requires English proficiency standards, English
  language proficiency assessments and defined annual
  measurable achievement objectives (AMAOs) for
  monitoring progress of English Learners

    What do the CELDT results tell us?


• The level of English language proficiency,
  NOT academic performance

• Primary indicator for initial identification
  as an English Learner
• One of the criteria for reclassification
