ELE Test Replacement
Start Date: 9/29/2017
End Date: 9/29/2017
Event Description:
Beginning in the 2017-18 school year, NYC EL Examen de Lectura en Espa�ol (ELE), a test for English language learners and English-proficient students in a Spanish bilingual program (dual language or transitional bilingual education), will be discontinued and replaced with the Periodic Assessment Home Language Arts (HLA) Spanish Performance Assessment task pairs, which includes beginning-of-year and end-of-year administration. If your school has a bilingual program, you are strongly encouraged to use the new assessment to:

  • Better identify students who need support in Spanish language arts;
  • Place students in the appropriate level of Spanish language arts instruction; and
  • Enhance your bilingual program.

You will receive the Beginning-of-Year (BOY) assessments and the BOY Spanish texts for grades K-2 (read-aloud and independent reading texts) between October 4 and 6, free-of-charge. If you are interested in receiving End-of-Year (EOY) materials free of charge, you must place an order in the Periodic Assessment Selection Tool between September 5 and 29. For information about Periodic Assessments, see the announcement below.
