Welcome to PRIME!

The Protocol for Review of Instructional Materials for ELLs (PRIME) training and correlation program was created by WIDA in response to member states seeking instructional materials that correlate to the WIDA English Language Proficiency (ELP) Standards. This program is designed to offer a process for publishers, independent correlators, and state and local education agencies to determine the ways in which key components of the WIDA ELP Standards are represented in textbooks, ancillary materials, on-line resources, and other instructional materials.

The PRIME training and correlation program includes high-quality trainings covering:

  • The WIDA ELP Standards
  • Criteria included in the PRIME inventory
  • WIDA PRIME Correlations
WIDA does not endorse any set of materials, but rather, seeks to provide states and districts with information that will allow them to make informed decisions about materials designed for English language learners.
