AZELLA Test Coordination

The Arizona English Language Learner Assessment (AZELLA) is a standards-based assessment that meets both state and federal requirements. AZELLA assess English language proficiency. AZELLA is used for both placement and re-assessment purposes. Students are identified as second language learners if the Primary Home Language Survey indicates a home language spoken other than English. Proficiency scores determine appropriate placement for instruction. Students who have been placed into an English language learner program will also take the AZELLA reassessment once per year until they achieve proficiency. Students who have scored proficient on the AZELLA are then monitored for two years to ensure success after their move into a mainstream classroom.

The Integrated Education Services Test Coordinator is a trained professional who individually assesses students that may or may not qualify for English Language Services.

Once the Integrated Education Services Test Coordinator completes the AZELLA assessments, the school is provided with a professional development training to determine implementation options.

The cost for the Integrated Education AZELLA Test Coordinator is determined by number of students required to participate in AZELLA assessments..
