It is a Language Assessment to measure English Proficiency.

It is part of the assessment program of the Kansas State Board of education and mandated by the Kansas State Legislature.

It produces data to capture trends across the state related to ESL students.

It is the instrument employed by the state to measure progress in meeting the Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives (AMAOS) for Title III.

And the data is utilized to base decisions correlated to instructional design for ESL/ELL students.

Kansas English Language Proficiency Assessment (KELPA) What is KELPA?

what triggers a kelpa who is tested how are student identified for testing

At enrollment, a home language survey (HLS) is filled out by parents.

If on HLS the parents indicate the presences of a language other than English at home a KELPA or a KELPA-P is triggered.

Students who have not scored “Fluent” on the KELPA

Students new to the district who do not score “Fluent” on KELPA-P

A parent can waive language instructional support and programming for their child, however, based on Federal mandates the child must be tested, if the parents have indicated on HLS a language other than English at home.

kelpa an assessment of knowledge

In their book Assessing Student Outcomes (1993), Marzano, Pickering, and McTighe, describe two distinct types of Knowledge:

Procedural Knowledge: Can be thought of as skills and strategies. Algorithms which are procedures or steps that must executed in a set order. (Doing three-column addition is a skill)

Declarative Knowledge: is information and can be ordered somewhat hierarchically according to its generality. At the bottom of the hierarchy are facts about specific persons, places, things, and events; at the top are concepts and generalizations. “John Kennedy was assassinated on November 22, 1963” is a fact. The statement “People holding high political office put their lives in jeopardy”is a generalization. The phrase “political assassination”is a concept.
