TELPAS Reading Raw Score Conversion Tables

The basic score on any test is the raw score, which is simply the number of questions correct. A raw score can be interpreted only in terms of a particular set of test questions. Unlike raw scores, scale scores can be interpreted across different sets of test questions. Scale scores allow direct comparisons of student performance between specific sets of test questions from different test administrations. A scale score is a conversion of the raw score onto a scale that is common to all test forms for that assessment. The scale score takes into account the difficulty level of the specific set of questions on which it is based. It quantifies a student’s performance relative to the passing standards or proficiency levels. The Texas English Language Proficiency Assessment System (TELPAS) raw score conversion tables listed below show the raw scores and the corresponding scale scores for each assessment. The links below open PDF (Portable Document Format) files.
