why assess language proficiency
Why Assess Language Proficiency?
  • To find out how well our students are learning to understand and speak Spanish or Japanese
  • To see growth in language proficiency across years
  • To see whether students learn Japanese at a different rate than Spanish
  • To validate teachers’ classroom-based assessments of language proficiency

overview of the evaluation
Overview of the Evaluation
  • 2001 ELLOPA was conducted by a team from Center for Applied Linguistics (CAL) over 4 days in May with K and 1st grade students (completing first year of immersion)
  • 2002 Evaluation was completed by JSIS staff and UW graduate students over 3 weeks in May-June with K, 1st, and 2nd grade students (1st and 2nd graders completing second year of immersion)
  • 2002 Evaluators received training in ELLOPA interviewing and rating at UW in April, 2002, as well as on-site training and coaching with Beverly Boyson of CAL in May, 2002

paired ellopa ratings 2001 2002 k 1 growth
Paired ELLOPA Ratings 2001, 2002 – K-1 growth

This is the most accurate representation of growth because it compares 40 students who were in the program both years.

Mean or Average

According to CAL, the rate of growth is statistically significant. They called our results “Impressive.”

what we ve learned so far
What We’ve Learned So Far
  • Listening Comprehension develops before Oral Fluency
  • Over 50% of the students reach Jr. Novice Mid or higher in Listening Comprehension during the first year of partial immersion
  • Over 50% of the students in Spanish reach Jr. Novice Mid or higher in all areas
  • Each new kindergarten class has a different baseline (compare 2001 and 2002)

what we ve learned so far cont
What We’ve Learned So Far (cont.)
  • Spanish proficiency develops faster than Japanese proficiency
  • The average increase from Kindergarten to 1st grade is one level (e.g., from Jr. Novice Mid to Jr. Novice High)
  • Teacher ratings are statistically similar to the ELLOPA interview ratings (particularly in 2002)
