  • AIRWays Reporting Replacing the Online Reporting System (ORS) this Fall

    In late September, the Online Reporting System (ORS) will be replaced by AIRWays Reporting for ELPA21. As part of this transition, all historical ELPA21 Summative scores during the timeframe that AIR has been your test vendor and the 2018-19 ELPA21 Screener scores will be available in AIRWays Reporting once it is launched. However, the ELPA21 Screener score reports from the 2017-18 administration will not be available in AIRWays Reporting. If you are a Test Coordinator or Test Administrator who requires these scores for future reference, please be certain to retrieve them from the ORS before October 31, 2019, when ORS will be permanently retired. Please contact the ELPA21 Help Desk if you need assistance retrieving the 2017-18 Screener score reports in advance of the deadline.
