NYSED Bilingual Glossaries
Bilingual glossaries are an essential and expected test
accommodation for English Learners in the State of New York. This
website presents glossaries for at least the top 10 state languages at
the state level, but it is updated with new languages with requests from
schools and updates in state data.
These glossaries may also be used by teachers, test translators and
interpreters, as well as school-based instructional materials
developers. Most importantly, schools are advised to make these
glossaries available for their ELs as soon as they enter school; parents
should also be given access to glossaries as an important school-parent
relation on behalf of students.
