What Happens When My Student Becomes Proficient?
When a student scores “Proficient” on the Arizona English Language Learner assessment, (AZELLA), he or she has attained the English language proficiency level necessary to be exited from the English Language Learner program. You will receive a reclassification letter from the school advising you that your student is proficient and has exited the ELL program. The student will be monitored for two (2) years following his or her exit from the ELL program to ensure continued academic success.
Students will be monitored for two years after testing proficient on the AZELLA. The first year after testing proficient students are classified as FEP-1 (Fluent English Proficient - 1st Year). After scoring proficient for two consecutive years, students are classified as FEP-2 (Fluent English Proficient - 2nd Year).
AZELLA stands for Arizona English Language Learner Assessment. The AZELLA measure the English proficiency of students who have a primary home language other than English. The assessment is aligned to the English Language Proficiency (ELP) standards. The AZELLA determines a proficiency level of Pre-Emergent, Emergent, Basic, Intermediate, Proficient.
The ILLP (Individual Language Learner Plan) is used at schools with low numbers of ELL students. The ILLP is the written plan in the mainstream classroom that specifies what happens, instructionally, for an English language learner (ELL). This plan documents the necessary four hours of English instruction the ELL student is receiving daily from a highly qualified teacher. The use of the ILLP will necessitate a commitment on the part of the administration and the teachers of the ELL student on an ILLP. The English Language Proficiency (ELP) Standards and Performance Indicators will be used in the instruction of ELLs on an ILLP.
