  • 2001 was the first year of RPTE (after the 2000 benchmark administration).
  • From spring 2007 to spring 2008, scores for secondary ELLs on the English language arts section of TAKS rose on average by 6%. Making gains like this across multiple grades in just two years is substantial in large-scale testing. In grade 8, the scores rose by 9%, and in grade 10 they rose by 11%. The passing percentages in grade 8 and 10 are still in the 40’s and 50’s. Math and science scores and gains are lower.
  • First LAT administration for mathematics was spring 2005

    26. 26. What is the Texas Projection Measure (TPM)? <ul><li>Applied to TAKS, TAKS (Accommodated), and linguistically accommodated versions of TAKS </li></ul><ul><li>A multi-level regression-based projection model </li></ul><ul><li>Projects student performance separately for each subject in the next high-stakes grade (defined by the Texas legislation as grades 5, 8, and 11) </li></ul>
    27. 27. Texas Projection Measure (TPM) <ul><li>TPM uses current TAKS information to predict future TAKS performance </li></ul><ul><li>TPM will be reported for TAKS mathematics, reading, science, social studies and writing </li></ul><ul><li>TPM projections will be reported for both English and Spanish versions of TAKS </li></ul>

    36. 36. Future
    37. 37. Reinforcing Connections <ul><li>In conjunction with other agency staff, Student Assessment staff will continue to reinforce connections between ELPS, content area TEKS, TELPAS, and TAKS </li></ul><ul><li>All teachers of ELLs are required to teach the ELPS </li></ul><ul><li>Understanding these connections is important </li></ul>
    38. 38. English language proficiency standards are aligned and linked with TELPAS <ul><li>TELPAS rater training helps teachers internalize what ELPS proficiency levels (PLDs) mean and why they are important </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers who attend rater training are getting professional development on the PLD portion of the ELPS in addition to assessment training </li></ul>ELPS TELPAS
    39. 39. TELPAS Results <ul><li>TELPAS raters learn to directly assess how well students can use English to engage in academic instruction. This is what TELPAS is all about. </li></ul><ul><li>This understanding leads to understanding the need for linguistically accommodated instruction. </li></ul>
    40. 40. Using TELPAS and ELPS to Inform Instruction <ul><li>At beginning of school year: Use prior spring’s TELPAS proficiency level ratings as starting place to guide linguistically accommodated instruction </li></ul><ul><li>All year: Use ELPS student expectations and PLDs to monitor progress and adjust linguistic accommodations accordingly </li></ul>Teachers To prepare for upcoming school year, use TELPAS results to evaluate whether students are making appropriate progress in learning English Administrators
    41. 41. What do ELPS say about linguistically accommodated instruction? <ul><li>Chapter 74.4 (b)(2): </li></ul><ul><li>School districts shall provide instruction in the knowledge and skills of the foundation and enrichment curriculum in a manner that is linguistically accommodated (communicated, sequenced, and scaffolded) commensurate with the student's levels of English language proficiency to ensure that the student learns the knowledge and skills in the required curriculum. </li></ul>
    42. 42. Bottom Line <ul><li>ELPS support learning of </li></ul><ul><ul><li>English as measured on TELPAS and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>academic content as measured on TAKS (and all its derivatives) </li></ul></ul>
