The Selection Taxonomy for English Language Learner Accommodations, STELLA, has been developed over the last few years and is in final form (Kopriva and others, 2002, 2005, 2006). STELLA is intended to be used with K-12 students to assign accommodations to the range of ELLstudents for use on large-scale academic assessments.
First Things First<br />There is no such thing as a nonbiased test.<br />Assessment is more than testing.<br />Prevention is better than failure.<br />Measure progress, not ‘achievement’<br />
RTI Progress Monitoring: When<br />RTI is a function of regular education that emphasizes preventing learning difficulties before they start and eliminating the need for a student to fail before intervention is available.<br />At-risk students are assessed frequently on specific skills throughout the year to determine if the intervention being used is effective and if the student is responding as intended.<br />
Progress Monitoring: Why<br />Based on progress monitoring and whether the student is achieving at an appropriate rate of progress in relation to his goals, the following factors may be changed or adjusted:<br />the research based materials <br />the frequency of the intervention<br />the duration of the intervention<br />group size<br />the designated instructor<br />
RTI Progress Monitoring: How<br />Is there a discrepancy between current & excepted performance?<br />Did it work? What do we do next?<br />Why & to what extent is there a problem?<br />By how much should the student grow?<br />By how much should the student grow?<br />How & when will the intervention strategy be implemented?<br />What will be done to resolve the problem?<br />

Tiered Progress Monitoring<br />Tier 1 Progress Monitoring: Students are assessed quarterly to ensure that they continue to perform at benchmark levels.<br />Tier 2 Progress Monitoring: Students are assessed regularly determine whether or not the interventions are effective within 8-10 week cycles.<br />Tier 3 Progress Monitoring: Students require intensive instruction and are assessed weekly within 2-4 week cycles of focused intervention.<br />Tier 4 Progress Monitoring: The cycle of intervention, progress monitoring, and adjustment of the intervention continues within IEP.<br />
