  • ELPA21 Summative Test Window Closing on March 13, 2020

    The ELPA21 Summative test window will close on Friday, March 13, 2020 at 5:00 p.m. Central Time. Please make sure that all students who are required to take the ELPA21 summative test complete the test by that date. Paper test materials—including paper and large print tests, and braille test booklets—must be returned at the end of the test window. Instructions for returning paper test materials were included with the shipment of the materials.

    These instructions are also posted in the Resources section of the Nebraska portal. If you need additional return shipment labels or help with returning your paper or braille test materials, please contact the Nebraska ELPA21 Help Desk.

    Please note that non-participation codes should be entered in TIDE by March 27, 2020 as well.

  • ELPA21 Summative Tests and Participation Reports are Open

    ELPA21 Summative tests and participation reports are now open. The ELPA21 summative test window ends on March 13, 2020

    There are two significant changes in the 2019-20 ELPA21 Summative administration:

    • The K-1 Writing Supplement has been eliminated.
    • To order paper, large print, and braille materials for Summative tests, please contact the NE ELPA21 Help Desk. Whereas in previous years, users had to place orders in TIDE, Help Desk agents will be able to gather details and place orders on your behalf. Some orders may require state approval before they are processed, so please place your orders for materials as soon as possible.

    The ELP21 Summative test window ends on March 13, 2020. Please review the ELPA21 Summative Test Administration Manual 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 Nebraska ELPA21 Help Desk if you encounter any issues administering ELPA21 tests.

  • Apple iPadOS 13 Supported for Online Testing

    Apple iPadOS 13 is now supported for online testing. Please ensure devices are updated to the latest version before testing to avoid issues encountered that were fixed by Apple in iPadOS version 13.2.2+. Also, Apple recently introduced a new feature called Voice Control that must be disabled before testing. This feature is turned off by default. Guidance on how to disable this feature, if enabled, is available in the Configurations for iOS Devices guide under Technical Resources for Technology Coordinators.
