It is taken concurrently with the elementary practicum (EDE 6946) but in a different school because of Pinellas County LEP placement policies (20 ESOL Centers only). At the class meeting, the instructor schedules appointments with students to review the results of their prior assessments, as recorded in the PATS system, and to develop remediation plans if needed. Students also receive instructions regarding the three Assessment Tasks to be completed during this practicum.
