TELPAS in Progress
Thank you for your hard work and careful attention to details regarding TELPAS. We are entering the scoring period. We appreciate all you did to get student writing portfolios turned in before spring break. We will have them back to you for any corrections and for rating early this week.
Please plan to collaborate with your team mates for rating to ensure consistency, using the scoring instrument from the TELPAS manual to guide your decisions. Rating rosters are due to Kristal by March 31.
Please keep in mind the importance of accurate ratings and plan for the time and careful attention required by this task.
