Assessment Requirements for ELL Students

Placement assessment to determine eligibility.


The Comprehensive English Language Learning Assessment

The Comprehensive English Language Learning Assessment (CELLA) is a four-skill language proficiency assessment that is designed to provide the following:


  1. Evidence of program accountability in accordance with Title III of No Child Left Behind (NCLB), which requires schools and districts to meet state accountability objectives for increasing the English language proficiency of ELLs;

  2. Data for charting student progress over time and for charting the progress of newly-arrived ELLs;

  3. Information about the language proficiency levels of individual students that may be helpful in making decisions to exit a student from the English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) program; and,

  4. Diagnostically useful information about individual student’s strengths and weaknesses in English (with as much specificity as possible).


The test items included in this assessment are based on the CELLA proficiency benchmarks, which are aligned to Florida’s English language proficiency standards. All students enrolled in the district (grades K-12) and classified ELL, with a code of “LY” or “LP” must be administered the CELLA. In addition, all students who are coded “LF” on or after September 1 of the current school year must be administered the CELLA.


LY: The student is an English Language Learner and is enrolled in classes specifically designed for English Language Learners.

LF: The student is being followed up for a two-year period after having exited from the ESOL program.


LP: The student is in grades 3-12, tested fully English proficient on an Aural/Oral Test and is an English Language Learner pending the Reading and Writing assessment, or the student is in grades K-12, answered “yes” on the Home Language Survey question “Is a language other than English spoken in the Home?” and is pending aural/oral assessment.
