The Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS)

TELPAS assesses the English language proficiency of K–12 ELLs in four language domains:
listening, speaking, reading, and writing. English language proficiency assessments in grades K–12 are federally required to evaluate the progress that ELLs make in becoming proficient in the use of academic English.

The assessment components for grades K–1 and 2–12 differ in the following ways:
•• Grades K–1: TELPAS includes holistically rated listening, speaking, reading, and writing
assessments based on ongoing classroom observations and student interactions.
•• Grades 2–12: TELPAS includes online reading and listening and speaking tests and
holistically rated student writing collections.
