Area of Focus:  The Oral Language Acquisition tester assesses students on how well they understand English when it is not their primary language. The tests used are interactive and adapt to the abilities of the student to identify what support is needed for a student to learn English, to measure skill levels of identified English Learners, and to identify the language abilities of a student who speaks a second language.
