Wisconsin DPI asks for some additional information about students classified as English Learner (EL) students, including their proficiency level, how they were assessed, and how long you've been monitoring them. Each of these fields are required for WISEdata reporting, so let's take a look at how to get the information recorded.
To set an EL student's English Proficiency information, log in to jmc Office and head to the View Student data screen, and click on the "ELL/LIEP" tab.
Step One: Select the LIEP Proficiency level from the “LIEP Proficiency” drop-down list.
Fun Fact: The drop-down list is automatically set to a level 7 proficiency.
Step Two: Select the English Language Assessment the student took from the “LIEP Assessment” drop-down list.
Helpful Tip: If the prior year ACCESS result exists, then use the prior-year result.
Step Three: Select if you are using the "Current" or "Prior" year assessment results from the "LIEP Assessment Year" drop-down list.
Step Four: Select how long you have been monitoring the student's language proficiency from the "LIEP Monitor Year" drop-down list.
Fun fact: English language learners who have completed LIEP level 6 (Now fully English Proficient) are monitored for two years on content achievement to assure English proficiency.
Step Five: Select the language program the student is enrolled in from the "Language" drop-down list.
Step Six: Click the “Save” button to save your changes.
