Register Below: Understanding the Use of CALP Scores When Measuring Language Proficiency for All Students
Friday, December 9th
10 AM PT | 12 PM CT | 1 PM ET
About the Session:
We typically think of CALP or Cognitive Academic Language Proficiency scores as measures of academic language relating to LEP/ELL students as a measure of second language acquisition and the quality of language exposure.
In this session, we will examine the use of CALP scores as we consider the impact of language development for all students. Knowing that there has been data of the 30-million-word gap in children from low socio-economic groups and now as we see children who are exposed to more technology devices instead of language exposure from parents at all socio-economic levels; CALP consideration is even more important in our assessments. This session will discuss interpretation of CALP scores and their use in our reports for SLD.
