Assessment Scores in LACES

To:Adult Education Directors
From:Wyvonne Stevens-Carter, Adult Education State Directors
Date:August 10, 2021

It has been brought to our attention that LACES does not reflect the scores of 612 for CLAS E Writing and 588 for CLAS E Reading as ESL Level 6 Completed as per ACLS assessment policies. We have remedied the situation and effective the date of the LACES roll-over (approximately August 27, 2021) these scores will reflect the ACLS assessment policies and will appear as ESL Level 6 Completed.

Scores of 588 and 612 in FY2021 may not be moved forward and used as pre-tests in FY2022 since they denote completion of the highest NRS ESL level.

For any questions, please contact Dana Varzan-Parker, Assessment Specialist.
