Is the plus-ques parfait the same as Passé composé?
In the sense that in être verbs, additions such as e, s, es are made when nscessary? For example:
Je suis sortie ( I am a girl)
would Plus-que parfait be:
J'étais sortie or J'étais sorti?
This question relates to:French lesson "Conjugate regular -er, -ir, -dre verbs (+ avoir) in Le Plus-que-parfait (pluperfect tense)"

You are correct...
With verbs that take the auxiliary être, the past participle will agree in gender and number with the subject just as in the passé composé and other compound tenses of the indicative mood...
So it would be -
J'étais sorti/e = I had gone out
Hope this helps!
