The Kansas English Language Proficiency Assessment (KELPA) measures the English language proficiency of EL students. Kansas administers the KELPA to measure student progress toward such proficiency based on English Language Proficiency Standards. Each KELPA assessment is broken into four parts, corresponding with the four language domains: listening, reading, speaking, and writing. All students who are identified as ELs must take
KELPA, whether or not they are receiving ESOL instructional services.
Building test coordinators (counselors) and ESOL teachers will administer the KELPA to all EL students in grades K-12 between February 3rd and March 13th. EL students continue to qualify for services until they score “proficient” in all four language domains for one year.
