English language learners come to classrooms with varying levels of English language exposure and unique learning needs. Educators are challenged with providing each student with a curriculum that meets them at their current proficiency level while also helping them progress.

Rosetta Stone Placement Guides

Rosetta Stone for Schools has developed placement guides for English language learners to get them started quickly in the the right Rosetta Stone unit. We recommend that all K-5 students start in Unit 1 regardless of proficiency test scores. For students in grades 6-12, these placement guides provide recommendations based on students’ scores on the most common English assessments, the ones they’re already taking in their classrooms.
