Step one of the I-ELDA testing has now been completed!  All of the schools in the state of Iowa who have ELL students have ordered their materials and as of March 26th, they have all been shipped.  We appreciate all the work everyone did with the assessment. 

Step two is receiving back the bubble answer sheets to be scored. We have already processed 20 percent of almost 22,000 students who will be tested for 2011. We are currently sending electronic notifications of the District and Comprehensive Student results back to the districts. They will soon be followed by the hard copy of the Individual Student Report showing a four-year history of results for the student.

While all of this takes place, we are transitioning into the next project—planning for the Iowa Culture and Language Conference. It will be held in Coralville, Iowa, again at the Coralville Marriott.  Please save the date of November 7-9, 2011! The conference will be offering another plethora of excellent presenters. Here is a list of many of our renowned speakers, with more to come:
