NYSESLAT - New York State English as a Second Language Achievement Test

The NYSESLAT is given each April/May to all students who are identified as English Language Learners.  
The purpose of the NYSESLAT is to annually assess the English language proficiency levels of ELLs in grades K-12.
The test gives the state, schools, parents and teachers important information about the English language development of ELLs.
This test is also used to determine eligibility for ELL Services for the following school year. 
Additional information may be found at NYSESLAT Parent Guides which have been translated into multiple languages
