2011–12 CELDT Information Guide Now Available
The 2011–12 CELDT Information Guide will be posted early September 2011 on the California Department of Education (CDE) CELDT Resources Web page. This document provides information and materials to assist local educational agencies (LEAs) in understanding, using, and communicating individual and summary results of the annual administration of the CELDT to staff, parents and guardians, and the public.
The new 2011-12 CELDT Information Guide replaces the former Understanding and Using Individual Results and Explaining Summary Results assistance packets. Information from both of these packets is now combined into one document for publication at the beginning of each administration year.
