English Language Proficiency Standards

English Language Proficiency Standards

The new Ohio English Language Proficiency Standards were adopted in June 2015. In total, there are 10 standards. They cover all four domains of language: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Each standard is broken down into tasks that English Language Learners (ELLs) at different language proficiency levels can complete. The State of Ohio assigns a proficiency level to all ELLs based upon their performance on an annual assessment (formerly OTELA now OELPA) in February or March. The levels range from 1 to 5.
