This framework document explores the World-Class Instructional Design and Assessment (WIDA) consortium’s English Language Development (ELD) standards, which represent the social, instructional and academic language that students need to engage with peers, educators and the curriculum.

WIDA is a consortium of 31 states, founded in 2002, that designs and implements proficiency standards and assessments for English learners (ELs) in grades K-12. The ASSETS consortium, of which DC is also a member, will leverage the work done at WIDA to develop the next generation of EL standards and assessments.
