SUBJECT: 2018 List of Approved Tests for Assessment of English Learners
Local Education Agencies (LEAs) are required to use a list of approved assessments for the identification and reclassification of English learners.
The 2018-2019 List of Approved Tests for Assessments of English Learners is provided in the link below, but is only applicable for this school year. Beginning in the 2019-2020 school year, LEAs will be required to use a single statewide test for entry and reclassification.
The approved tests placed on the list are based on scientific research and measure oral language proficiency in listening and speaking in English and Spanish from Prekindergarten (PK) - Grade 12.Assessments also measure reading and writing in English and Spanish from PK - Grade 12.
The list of approved tests are grouped in the following categories:
- Formative Assessment
- Annual Assessment
- Reclassification (grades 1-12 only)
The 2018-2019 List of Approved Tests for Assessment of English Learners can be accessed from the TEA webpage at: https://tea.texas.gov/bilingual/esl/education/
