CELDT and Title III Accountability August Notes

August 2011 edition of the California English Language Development Test (CELDT) and Title III Accountability Program notes.
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.

Scoring Training of Trainers (STOT) Workshops

The Sacramento County Office of Education will conduct the last two CELDT scoring training workshops for the 2010–11 Edition on August 23, 2011 in Downey and on August 30, 2011 in Sacramento. Information about registering for these workshops, or additional local/regional trainings, is available on the Educational Data Systems' CELDT Web site. [Note: the preceding Web address is no longer valid.]

Release of CELDT 2010–11 Initial Assessment (IA) Summary Results

IA results for the 2010–11 Edition of the CELDT will be posted in October 2011. Annual, initial, and combined assessment results will be available at the state, county, district, and school levels on the CDE DataQuest Web page.

Preliminary 2010–11 Title III Accountability Data Reports and Information Guide

The 2010–11 Preliminary Title III Accountability Data Reports, including information on annual measurable achievement objectives (AMAOs) 1 and 2, and the 2010–11 Title III Accountability  Report Information Guide are available on the CDE Title III Accountability Web page.

For questions regarding the Title III Accountability Data Reports, please contact the CELDT and Title III Accountability Office by phone at 916-323-3071 or by e-mail Stephanie Woo at amao@cde.ca.gov.

The Language Policy and Leadership Office (LPLO) provides technical assistance for LEAs/consortia that did not meet AMAO targets based upon data from the 2010–11 Title III Accountability Data Reports. The LPLO is available by phone at 916-319-0845.

Save-the-Date! Assessment and Accountability Information Meetings

In September and October 2011, the CDE will host two one-day meetings to provide LEA staff with the latest information about California’s assessment, accountability, and data management systems. The first meeting will be held at the Sacramento Convention Center on September 27, and the second meeting will be held at the Doubletree Hotel Ontario on October 4. In response to requests from past attendees, an archived webcast will also be available.

In August 2011, further information, including instructions for registering, will be sent to LEA testing liaisons and attendees from last year. Any other individuals interested in receiving this information should e-mail a request to ap@sjcoe.net with the subject line “North/South.”
