  • Windows 7 No Longer Supported Beyond 2019-20 School Year

    Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 and 2008 RS Operating Systems will no longer be supported for online test administration after the 2019-20 school year.

    We recommend that any districts using devices with these operating systems to please upgrade to the latest version of Windows before the 2020-21 school year. This change will be in effect for the ELPS opening during the first week of August. A list of supported systems is available on the Secure Browsers page. This information will also be published in LA’s 2020-21 Operating System Support Plan for Test Delivery System.

    If you have any questions, please contact the LA ELPT Help Desk or refer to the resources for Technology Coordinators.

  • ELPT and Participation Reports are Open

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

    There are two significant changes in the 2019-2020 ELPT administration:

    • The K-1 Writing Supplement has been eliminated.
    • To order paper, large print, and braille materials for Summative tests, please contact the LA ELPT 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.

    Please review the ELPT Summative Test Administration Manual and ELPS and ELPT TA User Guide for guidance on administering ELPT tests. It is strongly recommended that all Test Administrators administer the ELPT Online Tools Training 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 Louisiana ELPT Help Desk if you encounter any issues administering ELPT tests.
