  • 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.

This change will be in effect for the screener 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 AR’s 2020-21 Operating System Support Plan for Test Delivery System.

  • 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 6, 2020

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

    • The K-1 Writing Supplement has been eliminated.
    • To order additional paper, large print, and braille materials for Summative tests, please contact the AR 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 ELPA21 Summative test window ends on March 6, 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 Arkansas ELPA21 Help Desk if you encounter any issues administering ELPA21 tests.
