ESOL Online. Every child literate - a shared responsibility.
Ministry of Education.


The ELLP matrices allow teachers to make judgments across a range of contexts, text-types and ages. The matrices look at a comprehensive range of literacy skills, and provide teachers with both assessment and planning ideas for the English language learners in their classroom.

The sets of Google slides below are designed to unpack and explain the matrices. Each set contains exemplars, video clips and suggested texts that help to make sense of the indicators and apply them to your own classroom context. The slides can be used as is, for personal, team, or whole staff viewing, or can be downloaded and shared with your school, to be adapted to the needs of your students.
