ELPA Standards Verification Workshop Event Held November 6-9, 2012

In order to ensure that Oregon's state educational standards stay current, ODE staff and stakeholders reviewed the Performance Standards (or cut scores) used to determine whether an English Language Learner (ELL) is making progress toward English language proficiency. The workshop was held Tuesday 11/6/12 through Friday 11/9/12, with 83 leaders and participants from across the state. ODE recruited statewide to school districts and social service/community agencies. Below is a representation of the districts and outside agencies that had representatives at the workshop.

During Phase One of the workshop, each grade level group from Kindergarten through High School came to internal consensus about the cut scores for their grade. Next, during Phase Two, ODE staff and a cross-section of participants will move forward with finalizing the cut scores for all grades as they relate to one another. ODE anticipates that the Phase Two work will be completed in early 2013.
