The article Grade Placement Affects Math Performance for Immigrant ELLs, Study Says reports how grade placement of older ELLs can affect academic performance.

Among the findings are that "students placed in a lower grade than their age were less likely to be poor but more likely to be disabled, male, or to have scored higher on their initial English-language proficiency exam," and "higher-poverty students and those who scored at or below the 'novice' level on their English-language entrance exams were more likely to be placed in the higher grade."
