English Learners in the US must meet the same academic standards as native speakers of English. According to the latest NAEP study (2015), 73% and 79% of California’s ELs read below the basic level in 4th and 8th grade (respectively). This research does identify literacy skills that ELs have in Spanish, yet cannot demonstrate in English. Assessing the same skills in both languages is critical to determining whether it is a language issue, skill issue, or both.
