EL EXIT CRITERIA
A student is reclassified (no longer English learner) when the student has attained a performance level of Proficient on the OELPA. The Proficient performance level is defined as domain/test level scores of 4s and 5s in any combination across all four domains (listening, reading, writing and speaking). Students in grades K - 12 are eligible for reclassification if the student receives a performance level of Proficient.
In OELPA, there are three overall performance levels: Proficient, Emerging and Progressing. The performance levels are determined as follows:
- “Proficient” students are those scoring any combination of 4’s and 5’s across all four domains
- “Emerging” students are those scoring any combination of 1’s and 2’s across all four domains
- “Progressing” students are those scoring any combination across the four domains that does not fall into Proficient or Emerging
