Solicitation Description: The Texas Education Agency (TEA) is requesting proposals from qualified organizations to serve as a single Statewide Language Proficiency Test Provider for English Learner Identification in accordance with all requirements stated herein. The English language proficiency assessment shall measure language proficiency in the language domains of listening and speaking for children from Pre-K through Grade 1, and in the language domains of listening, speaking, reading, and writing for children in Grades 2-12. The Spanish language proficiency test shall measure proficiency in the language domains of listening and speaking for children from Pre-K through Grade 6. The proposed tests must be already developed, and ready for use at the time proposals are submitted. TEA does not desire to develop a new language proficiency test from this solicitation. Proposers may not bid on component parts of the solicitation as the State intends to have one test provider for both the English and the Spanish versions of the language proficiency test. In addition to providing the 1,200+ Texas Local Education Agencies (LEAs) the assessment instruments, the provider is also responsible for managing all test orders, payments, shipping, test administrator training, returns, technology support, and customer support services. Each LEA is responsible for payment of these assessments directly to the selected vendor. The number of assessments in a given service period may vary but it is expected that the proposed price or discount will be fixed throughout the term of this contract.
