Title III of No Child Left Behind requires the annual assessment of limited English proficient (LEP) studentsí progress in the development of reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills in English and in the acquisition of academic language in English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. English language proficiency assessment test scores are reported each year to the United States Department of Education (USDOE).

The Arkansas Department of Education (ADE) will conduct a Web-cast on Thursday, February 18, 2010, for all Title III coordinators, English as a Second Language (ESL) program coordinators, and test administration personnel to train for the spring 2010 administration of the English Language Development Assessment (ELDA). The Web-cast will be conducted from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. and will cover ELDA test administration for grades K-12.

Participants do not need to register for this Web-cast prior to the date. Each viewing site will have a sign-in sheet, and coordinators will be asked to fax participant lists to 501-683-0585 after the Web-cast.

A Web-cast is an online electronic conference in which the presentation is viewed on a computer with Internet capability. Audio for the conference is provided through a toll-free call-in number. This ELDA Administration Web-cast will be hosted by Measurement Inc.
