State Board Adopts New ELPA Cut Scores

On May 17, 2013 the State Board of Education adopted the new English Language Proficiency Assessment (ELPA) performance standards (“cut scores”) and the updated ELPA Performance Level Descriptors, based on recommendation by panels of stakeholders in November 2012 and February 2013. This work was completed at the request of superintendents from across the state, and in response to the larger ELPA item pool.

The newly-adopted ELPA performance standards, and the updated Performance Level Descriptors, along with additional resources are posted at http://www.ode.state.or.us/search/page/?id=3896. As with the previous ELPA performance standards, these new cut scores also align the English Language Proficiency Standards that were adopted by the State Board of Education in 2005, and will go into effect during the ELPA window in 2013-14.

More information about the State Board of Education is posted at http://www.ode.state.or.us/go/stateboard.
