Language Proficiency Assessment

About this Resource

When English language learners arrive for the first time at school, their English language proficiency needs to be assessed to identify student needs and inform planning for instruction. English language learners should also be assessed periodically throughout the year to determine how their language proficiency is developing. Occasionally, individual students may require additional assessment to identify if they have additional learning needs that may be interfering with their acquisition of language skills.

As part of this process, teachers can use the Alberta K–12 ESL Proficiency Benchmarks to establish the English language proficiency levels of each English language learner.
