Connecticut’s English Language Proficiency Assessment – LAS Links
The Connecticut State Department of Education (CSDE) will be using the LAS Links Assessment for the ELP Assessments for all students in Grades K-12 for the 2018, 2019 and 2020 test administration. The CSDE believes that high-quality, comprehensive and effective English as a Second Language (ESL) and bilingual education programs are essential to acquire English language proficiency and academic proficiency for students who are English Learners (ELs). The CSDE believes that research-based instructional practices that support ELs in general education classrooms are essential while they are acquiring English and well after they have exited the intensive programs.
