2015 NYSESLAT TRAINING (Writing portion only)

The purpose of these training sessions will be to train educators of ELLs  to become familiar with the changes and implementation of the Writing modality from the New York State English as a Second Language Achievement Test (NYSESLAT). You will identify and understand the revised elements of the NYSESLAT program, use rubrics to reliably and validly score the constructed-response items in the Writing subtest, and train other qualified persons to do the same. 

Please note: If your school has grades K-8, you may register for both K-5 and 6-8 session(s). If your school has grades 6-12, you may register for Manhattan or Queens grades 9-12 session(s). It is up to your descretion to register for any location of the grades 6-8 session(s). Space is limited.
