Assessment and Evaluation

State Testing-ELPA21

All students in grades K-12 in Nebraska who are eligible to receive ELL services participate in the English Language Proficiency Assessment for the 21st Century (ELPA21). It consists of online tests of reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills. There is a paper written section for students in Kindergarten and first grade. Students’ scores are used for state and federal reporting and in decisions about continuation of ELL services.

The 2018 testing dates for ELPA21 are February 5 – March 2, with a make-up window March 5-9.
