How does the EL Performance Measure work?
Beginning with the spring 2018 administration when the TELPAS standard setting was completed, each eligible student is placed into an EL Performance Measure (ELPM) Plan that specifies the expected number of years it should take for the student to reach the STAAR performance levels. Based on students’ ELPM Plans that they are placed in and their years in U.S. schools, their scale scores on each STAAR assessment are compared to the performance measure progress expectations that have been established by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) on each STAAR content-area assessment.
An eligible EL may receive one of the following reported EL Performance Measure values:
3 = Masters
2 = Meets
1 = Approaches
0 = Did Not Meet
