Product Features

The Basics: Your English Learners

Ellevation offers educators a detailed look at English Learners. Using Ellevation, educators can review a student's proficiency level, accommodations and more, and monitor current, reclassified, and exited students. Imagine that: all the information in one place, available anytime/anywhere – even on your couch.

ELLs at a glance

Get to know students more deeply. Easily view a student’s level, status, and history, and take and record notes.

Proficiency Levels

Review and group students by proficiency level based on English Language Proficiency assessments (including WIDA, CELDT, CELLA, TELPAS, NYSESLAT, ELDA, and many more).

Data for Differentiation

The Ellevation Dashboard offers a comprehensive view of ELL-related data. Educators can filter and view data at the district, grade, classroom, and school levels to easily view trends and group students.

  • Students Needing Attention

    Review students based on ELP assessment progress at the domain level to identify students that need attention.

  • Services

    View services being provided across a district or in a school, customized for the services offered in your state and district.

  • Duration / Long-term ELLs

    Easily identify students and the number of years as English Learners in order to prioritize for intervention, satisfy Title III reporting and more.

  • Score History Report

    Review each student’s ELP score progress by year, domain, level and scale score and identify important trends.

Personalizing Instruction

While all students have unique needs, ELLs can pose certain complexities rooted in cultural and linguistic differences. To personalize instruction for English Learners, educators can use Ellevation to get a sharp understanding of each student’s strengths and challenges, and work closely with colleagues to develop plans and coordinate instruction.

  • Choose from over 700 pre-written ELD aligned goals, assign a goal to a student or group of students, and easily monitor and report out on progress.

  • Automatically generate an individualized learning plan to highlight student needs and collaborate with colleagues during PLCs, inquiry meetings, LPAC meetings, and more.

  • Look at student progress easily at the classroom or school level, and identify common challenges and topics for professional development.

Enabling Collaboration

Ellevation InClass provides classroom teachers with tools to identify their English language learners, meet their language acquisition needs, and collaborate with all stakeholders to ensure instructional success. Integrated with the Ellevation platform, InClass helps all teachers become teachers of language.

  • Classroom teachers can quickly identify, filter, group and sort their ELLs, exited monitored students, newcomers, and more.

  • Classroom teachers can access digital student language plans, student ELP assessment results, and proficiency level descriptors to inform their instruction.

  • Classroom teachers can access classroom modifications/accommodations and language goals for all of their ELLs.

Compliance and Parent Communication

How many ELL educators got into the teaching profession to spend an inordinate amount of time on compliance? No one we know. Ellevation automates a wide range of reports to save educators significant time and improve compliance.

  • Automatically generate Title III required letters in 28 different languages.

  • Use Ellevation to “monitor” students during the post- reclassification federally required monitoring period.

  • Record, track and report out on the approved testing accommodations recommended for English Learners.
