  • 2018-19 Secure Browsers

    The 2018-2019 Secure Browsers are now available on the Secure Browser page of the Arkansas ELPA21 Portal. An updated Secure Browser Installation Guide is also available. Users are able to administer the ELPA21 Practice Tests and the ELPA21 Screener using either the 2017-2018 Secure Browser or the new 2018-2019 Secure Browser until December 31, 2018. After December 31, 2018 users will be required to use the 2018-2019 Secure Browser. The ELPA21 Practice Tests and Screener will no longer be accessible using the 2017-2018 Secure Browser.

    Updates to the iOS Secure Browser and the Chrome OS Secure Browser are also available. Most iPads and Chromebooks are set up to automatically install updates. If your iPad or Chromebook does not automatically install updates and you have one of these Secure Browser apps installed, you will need to download the updates to these Secure Browser apps. A link to download the apps for use on iPads and Chromebooks where they are not already installed is available on the Secure Browser page of the Arkansas ELPA21 Portal.

    The 2018-2019 Linux Secure Browser is also now available. 

    If you have any questions, please contact the Arkansas ELPA21 Help Desk.
