ESL and ELL Success Stories

Agencies and programs across the country are using CASAS to establish comprehensive performance accountability systems, address core indicators of performance, integrate literacy and occupational skill instruction, and evaluate the effectiveness of ESL/ELL, EL Civics, and Citizenship programs.

Washington State I-BEST

The Washington State Board for Community and Technical Colleges created the I-BEST program model and developed a funding model to enable students who qualified for basic skills instruction (based on scores on the Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment Systems [CASAS] test used by the state for basic skills students) to take college-level occupational courses that are team taught by a basic skills instructor and a professional-technical faculty member.
