English Language Proficiency Assessment (ELPA21)

The Oregon English Language Proficiency Assessment (ELPA21) is used to measure English proficiency for non-native speakers of English across the state. The Every Student Succeeds Act requires that students in kindergarten through 12th grade, receiving English Language Development services, are assessed annually to measure their English language development and proficiency levels. The ELPA21 is administered annually in the OAKS Online system and assesses students in the domains of listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
