The English Language Development Assessment consists of four tests designed to measure academic and social language proficiency in the domains of speaking, listening, reading, and writing. From the listening and reading tests, a comprehension score is calculated. The overall ELDA proficiency level (1-5) for each student is based upon a composite score that is derived from all four tests: speaking, listening, reading, and writing.
High school students take End-of-Course tests in six subjects:
Algebra I, Geometry, English II and III, Biology and U.S. History.
Students with the most severe cognitive disabilities are eligible to take the LEAP Alternate Assessment Level 1, known as LAA 1.The assessment is based on Extended Standards which capture the core academic content of academic standards.
Students in 3rd through 8th grade and 10th grade are assessed in English language arts and math. Students in 4th, 8th and 11th grades are assessed in science.
Students with persistent academic difficulties who meet specific participation criteria are eligible to take the LEAP Alternate Assessment Level 2, known as LAA 2. The assessment has fewer questions, less reading and writing, different scoring rubrics, and a modified format with fewer items on a page with larger print.
Students in 4th and 8th grade are assessed in English language arts, mathematics, science and social students. Students in 5th through 7th grade are assessed in English language arts and mathematics. Students in the 10th grade are assessed in English language arts and mathematics, and students in 11th grade are assessed in science and social studies. Students may take the LAA 2 in all subjects or just some subjects, based on their Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
The series of annual assessments in grades 3, 5, 6, and 7 is known as the “integrated” Louisiana Educational Assessment Programs (iLEAP). The iLEAP is referred to as an integrated LEAP because it originally combined a criterion-based component, which measured whether a student had mastered the academic standards, with a norm-referenced component (the Iowa Test of Basic Skills), which provided a percentile ranking of students. The iLEAP tests of 2013-14 no longer contain the Iowa portion and are criterion-based only.
Louisiana Educational Assessment Program (LEAP) is the series of annual assessments in English language arts, mathematics, science and social studies in 4th and 8th grades. Known as a criterion-based test, these tests are aligned to the state academic standards and determine whether a student has mastered the content of the academic standards.
