Score reporting
and test design data
Raw scores can be converted to scaled scores, and scaled scores can be converted to a criterion category (pre-emergent, emergent, basic, etc.). Reliability assessments were determined from form to form (see notes) and internal consistency ratings. Validity was determined using a variety of other Stanford assessments (SDRT and SAT-9)
Notes There are three forms (A, B, and C) of each level of the English Language Proficientcy Test (ELP) to allow for multiple assessments without test sensitization. The Spanish Language Proficiency Test (SLP) is only available in one form (Form A) at this time.
