Mississippi & LAS Links Assessments
Mississippi started using the LAS Links assessment to identify and monitor the progress of EL students during the 2015–16 school year. The web–based assessment includes tests in listening, speaking, reading and writing.
Reading and writing selected–response items are scored automatically, providing teachers with immediate data on students’ language proficiency. Students receive different assessments, based on their grade level. LAS Links’ grade bands are K–1, 2–3, 4–5, 6–8 and 9–12.
The assessments are aligned to the Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and PreK–12 English Language Proficiency Standards.
Summit K12 Language Development is evidence-based, aligns with LAS Links, WIDA, as well as The Common Core.
