Sept. 10 Cutoff: Applications Needed for ELPA Cut Scores Workshops (11/6-9)

ODE continues to need applicants for the review of its current English Language Proficiency Performance Standards (“Cut Scores”) for Kindergarten through 12th grade. This work will examine the consistency and coherence of the ELPA performance standards, which were established in 2008. The standards verification workshop will include data from a number of analytical studies, including the ELPA contrasting groups study. The contrasting group study was conducted in collaboration with various school districts, examining teacher professional judgment of student English language proficiency. These data were then compared to actual ELPA scores. Grade-by-grade results and interpretation will be shared at the workshop.

Numerous applicants are needed for the 4-day workshop, in preparation for the possible revision of the performance standards for the English Language Proficiency Assessment (ELPA). ODE is seeking applications from qualified participants including teachers, administrators, parents, business and industry staff, community college staff, and university faculty. The participant application form is located at: www.ode.state.or.us/go/elpa. If not enough applications are received for the event, the work will have to be delayed.

For additional information, please contact Carla Martinez at carla.martinez@state.or.us eMail. Please note that the deadline to apply for this workshop is Monday, September 10, 2012.
