Does the English Language Proficiency (ELP) use grades 3–12 TELPAS results for current year EB students/EL students or does it consider all K–12 results?
The Progress in Achieving English Language Proficiency component evaluates the TELPAS and TELPAS Alternate results for grades K–12. Current year TELPAS and TELPAS Alternate results are compared to the prior year results to determine if the student made progress.
As the TELPAS writing domain is being updated for 2023, TELPAS results are evaluated at the domain level for 2023. To be considered as having made progress, a student must increase a proficiency level or score Advanced High or Basic Fluency in the current year in 2 of the 4 TELPAS domains (listening, speaking, reading, writing).
