5 TELPAS Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System TELPAS is designed to assess the progress that English language learners (ELLs) including LEP denials make in acquiring the English language. TELPAS measures the acquisition of English in alignment with the Texas English Language Proficiency Standards [ELPS] - ELPS are the second language acquisition curriculum standards. TELPAS assesses students in Kindergarten through 12 th grade in four language domains: Listening, Speaking, Writing and Reading. Teachers are trained to use proficiency level descriptors to holistically rate the English language proficiency levels of students - Grades K-1: TELPAS includes holistically rated Listening, Speaking, Writing and Reading assessments based on ongoing classroom observations and student interactions. Grades 2-12: TELPAS includes an online multiple-choice reading test (known as TELPAS Reading), holistically rated student writing collections, and holistically rated listening and speaking assessments. The listening and speaking assessments are based on ongoing classroom observations and student interactions. Students receive a proficiency rating of Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced, or Advanced High in each of the four language domains.

6 TELPAS Proficiency in English on TELPAS Reading is determined by comparing the particular score achieved by the student with that score s corresponding proficiency level designation. Students receive a vertical scale score for TELPAS Reading that is used to gauge progress in acquiring English language proficiency (used to monitor improvement from one year to another). Each proficiency level encompasses a range of growth and has an early, middle, and late stage. Students also receive a composite proficiency rating that provides a single overall level of English language proficiency calculated using scores obtained from the weighted sum of each of the domain ratings - listening 10%, speaking 10%, writing 30%, reading 50%. The proficiency ratings are tied to proficiency level descriptors (PLDs) which describe the degree to which ELL students at each of the four proficiency levels need linguistic supports and accommodations to engage meaningfully in grade-level instruction. TELPAS results: help teachers evaluate students progress in their ability to understand and use English in academic settings inform instructional planning and/or instructional interventions to accelerate a student s English acquisition help parents monitor the progress their children make in learning English guide campuses/lpac committees in making program exit decisions for individual students help evaluate programs, resources and staffing patterns provide performance data to fulfill state and federal reporting requirements

Think-Through Math is an adaptive self-paced program that provides targeted individualized interventions. It adapts to student levels of knowledge by using a series of tests that identifies student weaknesses. With the gathered data, the program creates an individualized intervention pathway according to the student levels of performance. Think-Through Math is web based and can be accessed from home at all times.

18 Students have been consistently using the program as an intervention strategy during and after school, or at home. Laredo ISD has 10,513 students in grades 3 rd - 8 th currently utilizing TTM. 155,528 completed lessons 43,555 hours using TTM
