How and when are English learners assessed in Texas?
English learners take the same state assessments as all other children in Texas,
currently known as the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness, or STAAR.
For parent-friendly information on this assessment, visit the Texas Assessment website.
All English learners are also assessed using the Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System, or TELPAS.
This assessment measures the progress English learners are making in learning the English language.
For information on the STAAR and TELPAS, visit the Information on State Assessments for English Learners web page.
