LEP Identification versus
ESL Services…
LEP Identification is used for accountability
purposes; based solely on IPT score.
A student exits LEP identification when he or she has scored
“Superior” on all three domains of the IPT during the
same test administration.
At that time, the student is no longer identified as LEP and is
no longer eligible to receive testing accommodations.
ESL Services are determined at the school
level; based on multiple criteria.
STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION

The NCAAAI
(NC Alternate Academic Assessment Inventory)
1) Alternate assessment for EC students (can
be off grade level), as well as qualifying
LEP students (must be on grade level)
2) To qualify, the LEP student must:
•
Be within 24 months of enrollment in US schools
•

Use of the IPT
Beginning with the 2004-05 school year:

language proficiency of students identified

such as determining continued placement,
level of services, or instruction.

Accommodations on the IPT
• LEP accommodations are not allowed
during the IPT test administration
because the accommodations will
invalidate the English language
