WIDA Can-Do Descriptors
English language development (ELD) is such an individualized process, broken down into multiple language domains, that knowing what the scores actually mean at the different grade levels will be invaluable to the teachers. It will also help the discussions about (more exactly :-) what it is the students "can do". Below are the CAN-DO Descriptor Name Charts for the teachers so they can record the LEP student's individual proficiency levels in each of the (4) language domains. Their intended use is to help teachers differentiate instruction, plan lessons, and/or observe students' progress.
