The English Oral Language Assessment

EOLAThe English Oral Language Assessment is a formative assessment designed to help educators identify English language acquisition in Grades PreK-8. The assessment contains two sections: one that measures receptive language skills and one that measures expressive language skills. The EOLA was developed through a grant from the Sieben Foundation, which enables the assessment tool to be very cost-effective for Catholic schools. Digital files for use with the assessment are made available at after purchase.
