The spring 2005 administration of the New York State English as a Second Language Achievement Test (NYSESLAT) has been scheduled for April 25 to May 20, 2005. Test booklets, directions for administration, and school administration manuals are being prepared by Harcourt Assessment.

Harcourt Assessment mailed a letter and an instructional guide for ordering these materials to the principals of public, charter, and nonpublic schools.

This year, all orders will be placed via the internet. The Harcourt Spectrum Instructional Guide will provide information on how to initiate a NYSESLAT test order using their web address. Orders should be made by the school principal or designated staff person.  Only one order per school building will be accepted. 

All orders are to be placed no later than Friday, April 1, 2005.
