Embedded and Non-Embedded Designated Supports for English Learners

Students who are English learners (ELs) may benefit from using designated supports when participating on the Connecticut state-wide assessments. These designated supports are intended as a language support for students who have limited English language skills, whether or not they are identified in PSIS as EL or EL with a disability. The use of these supports may result in the student needing additional overall time to complete the assessment. 

Note: Students should use the Practice Test with the designated supports prior to testing to ensure that they are appropriate and accessible prior to use on statewide assessments.
