The purpose of the LAS Links assessment is to determine a student's level of English proficiency. The placement test, administered upon the student's arrival in the United States, is used to determine which English Learner (EL) services are appropriate for the student. The annual assessment, administered in January and February, is used to determine the student's current level of English proficiency. The annual assessment is also used for accountability purposes (see the "Results" section below for more information).
LAS Links assesses students in grades K-12 on four domains: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. This assessment is administered in five grade bands: K-1, 2-3, 4-5, 6-8 and 9-12.
Results of the LAS Links assessment are returned in mid-May. LAS Links results are used to determine corporation and school-level Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives, which are available in late fall.
