(ELPA 21) English Language Proficiency Assessment
*Dates listed are specific to Sunny Hills and may fall within a broader range set by the State or the ISD.

Note:

  1. F&P is available to inform instruction, and encouraged for kindergarten readers as they build fluency; recommended once a student reaches level C or above.
  2. This new assessment is a 1:1 assessment required in the new literacy/ dyslexia law. It will be appropriate for kindergarten paraprofessionals to be trained to give this short assessment. (5-10 minutes per student). This assessment is required for 1st grade as well and may be used for 2nd grade students who demonstrate difficulties in reading to determine if the student may have reading difficulties related to dyslexia.
  3. Formative F&P means that teachers are required in 1st-3rd grade to administer an F&P to inform instruction/ guided reading groups at some time in the first Trimester. Teachers should keep data on students for use by school teams/ decision making, including the date of administration for each student. District data will not be collected and placed in homeroom due to the lack of a concise assessment window.
  4. F&P for 4th-5th grade is available to inform instruction on individuals and encouraged for students without recent F&P scores, but it is not encouraged for schools to request all students receive the F&P due to the administration of iReady and SBA.
