Scoring Training of Trainers (STOT) Workshops

Attendance at Statewide Workshops

Registration priority for the 2017–18 STOT workshops will be given to new CELDT district trainers who have never participated in a STOT workshop or will be trainers for regional workshops.

CELDT district trainers who have previously attended a STOT workshop must fulfill the 2017–18 training requirement by either (1) completing the online training presentations and quizzes in the Moodle Training Site, or (2) attending a regional workshop. However, interested previous participants will be automatically wait-listed for a possible last-minute slot in a workshop and will be notified a week prior to each workshop if space is available.

Training Resources

Training resources will be available for download (PDF files for each section) from the secure online California English Language Development Test (CELDT) Moodle Training Site, including the 2017–18 Trainer’s Kit Binder. On Friday, March 24, 2017, districts will have access to the secure online CELDT Moodle Training Site. In order to access the site, each district will need to access its unique Moodle enrollment keys. These enrollment keys will be posted in the secure District Portal beginning March 24. Trainer’s Kit Binders will also be available for purchase on a cost recovery basis. If you are interested in purchasing training materials, please submit a STOT Training Materials Order Form (Coming Soon).

Detailed communications regarding training materials will be e-mailed to CELDT District Coordinators throughout the spring. E-mails are posted on the Communications Log Web page.

Regional Workshops

Please note that all CELDT examiners are required to be trained to administer the CELDT 2017–18 Edition for the Initial assessment only. To accommodate your district’s training needs, many regional workshops around the state will be available. As each becomes available, the regional workshops will be posted on the CELDT Web site on the Regional Workshops Web page
