Washington State Proficiency Levels

The following are the Proficiency Level Descriptors (PLD) developed by the eleven-state ELPA21 Consortium. These PLD define and describe the five levels of language acquisition that ELLs move through as they progress toward English proficiency. This document complements the English Language Proficiency Standards and is intended to serve as a foundation to better understanding the standards.
