      Welcome Sunshine program participants for those of you who are new to or recently revisiting the DET EAL Developmental Continuum P-10 please provide us with comments and feedback on it. Is the Continuum easy to understand and useful? Do you have any questions or points of clarification? We look forward to reading your feedback.

      At Laverton P-12 College we use the EAL Continuum P-10 level progression profile descriptors to assist us in assessing EAL students’ levels for the three dimensions particularly Writing, and we have noticed that when we look at the Writing samples provided for that level there appears to be a bit of discrepancy, i.e. the writing sample is of a higher level than indicated by the descriptor. Which leaves us confused about which to use; the Descriptor or Sample in determining students’ levels.

      We have also found discrepancies between the indicators of progress and the desription, such as A1.1 from the description would not recognise or be interested in English print, however, from the indicators might be writing strings of letters.
      We tend to guide staff to use the indicators as they are more detailed.

      At [our] Secondary College, we use the EAL Continuum for all EAL assessment tasks from Y7 – Y10. The stages and progress indicators are visible in the instructional rubrics. EAL staff develop the Common Assessment Tasks (CAT) with corresponding rubrics, collaboratively, in year level teams (the year levels that they teach).

      What has been interesting is that as a faculty, we have agreed which range of stages should be in the Year 7 and 8 rubric, and Year 9 and 10 rubric. We are not completely satisfied with what we are using as EAL students can be at any stage on the continuum, not taking into account their year level.

      Hi all,
      The assessment tasks are EAL reading and viewing, writing, and speaking and listening.
