The Texas English Language Proficiency System (TELPAS)

For students whose first language is not English, the Texas English Language Proficiency System (TELPAS) measures English Learners (ELs) proficiency and growth in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in English. Students receive a rating of beginning, intermediate, advanced, or advanced high in each area. All ELs in kindergarten through grade 12 are tested each Spring until their language proficiency assessment committee (LPAC) determines that they are proficient in English.

Due to COVID-19 school closures, the Texas Education Agency made the completion of TELPAS assessments optional for the 2019-2020 school year. However, in the 2020-2021 school year, districts across the state must administer TELPAS. Students attending school on campus will take TELPAS subtests as they typically would with additional COVID-19 safety measures in place.
