EEC 117: Analyzing ELL Data for Content and Language Development (for all Educators)

In order to equitably assess and address the needs of ELLs, educators must have a deep understanding of multiple data sources and how to use this data to improve instruction and assessment. In this competency-based course developed by a WIDA Certified Trainer, participants will analyze content and language development data and consider valid and reliable assessment design practices. Participants will receive WIDA Framework tools and content-specific texts and resources in this interactive and engaging course. Participants will generate content-specific fieldwork and a personalized "action cycle" implementation plan for new learning to immediately impact teaching practice and ELL learning outcomes. The instructor can customize the course format for district/school needs and deliver the course at the district site.
