  • Lenovo Yoga N23 Chromebooks

    AIR is working with Google to fix a bug happening in Lenovo Yoga N23 Chromebooks related to freezing when an ELPT Speaking test is administered on the Chromebook. Until the issue is fixed, please use a different platform for administering the ELPT Speaking test. This issue only affects Lenovo Yoga N23 Chromebooks. We have not encountered any issues with other brands of Chromebooks.

  • Update to ELPT Chrome OS Secure Browser

    An update to the ELPT Chrome OS Secure Browser (version 3.1) will be posted in the Chrome web store for download next week. This update will over-ride the Chromebook’s settings for when a computer goes into sleep mode and prevent a Chromebook from powering down and “going to sleep” while the student is taking a test. The updated Secure Browser will only prevent the Chromebook from powering down while the student is logged into a test. At all other times the Chromebook’s settings will determine when the Chromebook power down. Installation of this update is voluntary. Students will be able to continue to test on Chromebooks where it has not been installed.

  • Submitting ELPT Tests

    If you have any concerns regarding an ELPT test that is in progress please have the student PAUSE the test. Contact the Help Desk for assistance resolving the issue.  Do not submit the test until the issue is resolved. 

    If students are recording speaking responses but there is no sound during the playback of the recordings, please verify that the mute button on the headset has not been accidently engaged.

  • ELPT Summative Tests and Participation Reports Are Open

    ELPT summative tests and participation reports are now open. The ELPT summative test window ends on March 16, 2018. Please review the ELPA Test Administration Manual and  ELPT TA User Guide for guidance on administering ELPT tests. We strongly recommend 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.
