How to progress monitor English Language Learners?

Would like additional ideas besides the yearly language proficiency assessment. What are ESL and mainstream teachers using? Is it done at least once a trimester? How are the assessments differentiated?

      Try communicating with the mainstream teachers about areas of success/challenges. As an ESOL teacher, my goal was for students to succeed in the mainstream classroom. Ask questions like: Are the students participating in class? Do they interact with peers? Are they familiar with the vocabulary for the content that is being taught? How is their progression in reading and writing? You could monitor progress based on your specific goals each individual student.
