Texas English Learner Reclassification Testing for Grades 1, 2, 11, and 12

The Texas Education Agency (TEA) replaced its Commissioner’s List of Approved Tests with a single statewide assessment for English Learner reclassification, effective in the 2019-2020 school year. TEA selected Riverside Insights® as the single State Standardizes Reading Assessment for English Learner Reclassification for grades 1, 2, 11, and 12, per contract #4023.

Important Update:

Announced in Spring 2021, TEA extended the Reclassification testing window through the first 60 days of the Fall 2021 semester. For a successful testing experience, we have created a one-page guide on how to test your students for Reclassification, along with a video for district Administrators on how to set up the test.

Click here for the guide and instructions on setup.

We strongly recommend that all district Administrators watch the video and review the one-pager before moving forward with testing.
