WIDA developed WIDA PRIME V2 as a tool to assist publishers and educators in analyzing their materials for the presence of key components of the WIDA Standards Framework. PRIME stands for Protocol for Review of Instructional Materials for ELLs.
The WIDA PRIME V2 correlation process identifies how the components of the 2012 Amplification of the English Language Development Standards, Kindergarten through Grade 12, and the Spanish Language Development (SLD) Standards, Kindergarten through Grade 12 are represented in instructional materials.These materials may include core and supplemental texts, websites and software (e.g., apps, computer programs), and other ancillary materials. WIDA PRIME V2 is not an evaluative tool that judges the effectiveness of published materials.
Those who complete WIDA PRIME V2 Trainings become Trained Correlators. This may be renewed on an annual basis. Contact WCEPS for pricing details at firstname.lastname@example.org or 877-272-5593.
