ELPA Test Primary Measure for ELL Students
The State Board of Education has accepted the following policies for the ELPA test:
  1. The ELPA will be the primary state measure for determining ELL students' English Language proficiency. Students who achieve a level of "Advanced" on ELPA are generally considered to be proficient.
  2. Students who achieve a level of "Advanced" on the ELPA may remain in the ELD program when a compilation of district evidence indicates that the student needs more time in the ELD program and they may still qualify for ADMw funding.
  3. ODE expects that the vast majority of students who achieve a level of "Advanced" on the ELPA will likely exit from an ELD program. Districts' ELL data will be analyzed for excessive exiting decisions that are discrepant from the achievement level of the ELPA as part of ODE's Federal/State monitoring program.
  4. ODE will add an option in the LEP collection for districts to communicate when a student is not exited after achieving an "Advanced" level on the ELPA.
