Welcome Arizona Educators!
Welcome to Understand Scoring.
Explore the online training platform developed for the Arizona English Language Learner Assessment (AZELLA) for Kindergarten Placement Test and Stage II. This site is designed to ensure a clear, concise, and consistent way to 1) administer and score assessment items on the AZELLA Kindergarten Placement Test and 2) score AZELLA Placement Test Stage II Writing.

The AZELLA Training tab provides you with valuable insight into the background, administration, format, setup, and scoring of the AZELLA Kindergarten Placement Test. It also provides background, rubrics, scoring information, and practice material for the AZELLA Placement Test Stage II Writing subtest. Kindergarten Placement Test qualification is distinct from AZELLA Placement Test Stage II Writing qualification. It is not required nor expected that the same person/s would need to be qualified for both functions.
