The English Learners (EL) State Collaborative on Assessment and Student Standards (SCASS) constitutes the only national, sustained forum among state education agencies, researchers, and policy experts on issues of standards and assessment for English learners. The EL SCASS explores issues of policy implementation, particularly focusing on college- and career-ready academic standards and state English Language Proficiency (ELP) standards, their aligned assessment systems, and state policies that affect instruction, curriculum, professional supports, and leadership for ELs. EL SCASS members, in collaboration with advisor Kenji Hakuta and co-advisor Magda Chia, determine specific issues of focus.
