English Language Proficiency Assessment (ELPA)
  • For 20102011, schools must use Oregons ELPA
    for ALL students meeting the criteria for an
    English Language Learner.
  • Only those students with the LEP Flag will be
    able to take ELPA.
  • Students on monitor status do not take ELPA.

11
LEP Flag for 2010-2011
  • Beginning in the 2010-2011 School Year, ODE
    requires that ELPA only be available to students
    for whom LEP is set to Y in the SSID
    collection. This includes students coded 4N in
    the LEP collection. This change will help ensure
    that only LEP students take ELPA.
  • Please remember that students who have exited
    from English Language Development services in the
    prior year (i.e. those on monitoring status)
    should not take ELPA unless they re-enter through
    the districts placement process.

ELPA Score Delivery
  • Part of ELPA is hand scored. You will not have an
    immediate score for your students.
  • ELPA scores take 6-12 weeks for batch 1-plus-2
    and 6 weeks thereafter from the end of the month
    in which the students take the assessment.
  • Example If a student completes the ELPA in
    March, the student scores will be available after
    May 15th.

    independently, not offering help to other
    students.
