English Language Proficiency Assessment (ELPA)

The Oregon English Language Proficiency Assessment (ELPA) is used to measure English proficiency for non-native speakers, or English Language Learners (ELL). The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) requires that students in kindergarten through 12th grade that are receiving ELL services, are assessed annually to measure their level of English proficiency. The ELPA is administered in a web-based format in the OAKS Online system and assesses students in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing.
