  • ELPA21 Summative Tests and Participation Reports are Open

    ELPA21 Summative tests and participation reports are now open. The ELPA21 summative test window ends on Friday, April 9, 2021

    Please review the ELPA21 Summative Test Administration Manual (TAM) and TA User Guide under portal resources for guidance on administering ELPA21 tests. It is strongly recommended that all Test Administrators administer the ELPA21 Practice Test to their students prior to administering the summative test so the Test Administrators and students can become familiar with the technology prior to summative test administration.

    Contact the Iowa ELPA21 Help Desk if you encounter any issues administering ELPA21 tests.
