  • ELPA21 Summative Paper and Braille Materials to Arrive in Districts by January 20, 2020

    Initial orders consisting of paper, large print, and braille materials for the ELPA21 Summative will arrive in districts by January 20, 2020. This delivery will include materials ordered through the Help Desk by November 22, 2019.

    An additional order window will open January 22, 2020 where the Help Desk can intake orders that were not submitted by the November 22, 2019 cut-off date.

    Please note that the summative assessment no longer uses the K-1 Writing Supplement. The Writing domain will consist of all machine-scored items for Kindergarten and Grade 1. The updated Writing domain results will still provide you with the same data and information as in previous years.

    If materials do not arrive by these dates, please contact the NE Help Desk.
