Annual EL Program Evaluation
English Learner Subgroup Self Assessment (ELSSA)
The English Learner Subgroup Self Assessment (ELSSA) serves as a district level tool for LEAs to analyze outcomes and program services for English learners (ELs) while preparing LEA plans and addenda to meet requirements under Title I and Title III. This refers specifically to LEAs developing Title III Action Plan Needs Assessments and Title I Program Improvement plans related to the EL student group. All LEAs may benefit from using the ELSSA in local planning. The ELSSA helps LEAs focus on the attainment of linguistic and academic standards EL students as well as to identify issues regarding EL instructional programs.

Title III Accountability
Under Title III of NCLB, districts (and county offices of education) must establish benchmarks and annually measure the progress of students trying to attain English proficiency. These benchmarks for English learners are called annual measurable achievement objectives (AMAOs) and occur in three areas. The first two pertain to progressing toward and attaining English proficiency as measured by students' results on the California English Language Development Test (CELDT). The third area is the annual measurable objective (AMO) used to determine adequate yearly progress (AYP) under NCLB.
