The English Language Proficiency Assessment (ELPA) Screener expiration rule (also known as the “auto submit” window) has been extended from 7 calendar days to 14 calendar days for the remainder of the 2020-2021 school year. ELPA Screener tests will now remain available for 14 calendar days after the student begins the test. After 14 calendar days, the test will expire and submit automatically. Districts Test Coordinators may request to reopen expired ELPA Screener tests via the test impropriety form. Users may track test expiration dates using participation reports in the Test Information Distribution Engine (TIDE). Please refer to the 2020-2021 TIDE User Guide for detailed information on participation reports.
