Key Steps to Take This Fall
TEA - September 2014 Fall ELL Assessment Update DRAFT
38
1. Conduct ELPS and TELPAS
professional development sessions
 Teachers are required to implement the ELPS and content area TEKS
in instruction
 District and campus administrators need working knowledge of ELPS
and TELPAS
 TELPAS familiarization training is
 good for future raters
 good way to reinforce use of PLDs all year long
TEA - September 2014 Fall ELL Assessment Update DRAFT
39
2. Help support teacher use of TELPAS
results and ELPS PLDs to monitor and
maximize learning of English
Beginning of year:
 Review ELLs’ past TELPAS results to see if making steady progress in
learning English
 TELPAS confidential campus student rosters include
 2 years of test scores
 how long student has been in U.S. schools
TEA - September 2014 Fall ELL Assessment Update DRAFT
40
3. Help support LPAC use of TELPAS results
and ELPS PLDs to monitor and maximize
learning of English
LPAC meetings during school year:
 Use previous spring’s TELPAS results and current year’s teacher input
to
 gauge progress in English proficiency
 review and adjust linguistic accommodations used in instruction
 plan for instructional interventions, if necessary
 plan for linguistic accommodations during state assessment
TEA - September 2014 Fall ELL Assessment Update DRAFT
41
Remember
 When implemented effectively in instruction, linguistic
accommodations
 accelerate learning of academic content and English
 reduce length of time and degree to which substantial linguistic
accommodations needed
The ELPS, as measured by TELPAS, support
better learning of the TEKS, as measured by STAAR
