Kansas & KELPA Assessments
The Kansas English Language Proficiency Assessment (KELPA) assessment is part of the federal elementary and secondary education legislation for English learners (ELs). KELPA measures English language proficiency in four domains: listening, reading, writing, and speaking. The grade bands assessed include Kindergarten, 1, 2–3, 4–5, 6–8, and 9–12.
What does the KELPA Assessment Measure?
The KELPA assessment measures the following:
Reports individual student scores along with each student’s performance levels,
Provides domain scores and an overall proficiency score that can be used with local assessment scores to assist in improving student learning.
English Language teachers can set reaching expectations for their English Language (EL) students, accelerate English language acquisition, and ensure equity for all English Language Learners.
