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.
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.
