The Texas Education Agency (TEA) designed the Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS) and TELPAS Alternate to assess the progress that limited English proficient (LEP) students, also referred to as Emergent Bilinguals, make in learning the English language.
The test is given in the Spring each school year.
Four domains of language are tested:
2021-2022 Assessment Dates
Language Proficiency Assessment Committees
LPACs make testing decisions for Emergent Bilinguals, including test accommodations, alternate tests, etc.
