English Language Development Assessment (ELDA)

ELDA is a battery of tests designed to allow schools to measure annual progress in the acquisition of English language proficiency skills among non-native English speaking students in grades 3-12. The battery consists of separate tests for listening, speaking, reading, and writing, at each of three grade clusters: 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 and a separate K-2 Inventory. The test has recently been revised into a shorter form while maintaining impeccable statistical characteristics.
