Data

From 2004 to 2009, data reported by the University of Washington's Mapping and Enhancing Language Learning (MELL) Project were collected through MELL surveys of schools. Since 2010, MELL has been utilizing data collected from the world languages enrollments reported in the OSPI Comprehensive Education Data and Research System (CEDARS), a longitudinal data warehouse of educational data based on standardized state course codes. CEDARS records student "enrollments" at each school by state course code. These enrollments may represent actual seat-time classes in the school or credits earned by students through online courses, Running Start courses at the community college, or competency-based credits, i.e. credits earned by students demonstrating proficiency in the language.

Trends

One of the goals of the MELL project has been to report on trends in language offerings and provide supporting data. The following trend reports compare the percentage of specific languages offered by schools in the state across multiple years.
