Ohio English Language Proficiency Assessment (OELPA)
Supporting English Language Learners in the Classroom
Ohio is a member of the English Language Proficiency Assessment for the 21st Century (ELPA21) consortium which developed the English language proficiency assessment based on the English Language Proficiency Standards. The test administered in Ohio is the Ohio English Language Proficiency Assessment (OELPA) and is based on the Ohio English Language Proficiency Standards.
The OELPA is interactive for students; reduces turnaround time on reporting results; improves efficiency of data collection and management; increases security of test content and student data; and reduces administrative burdens on school and district staff members.
The Screener to identify students as English language learners will be available for school year 2018-19. It is scheduled to be posted on August 1, 2018. More information will be forthcoming.
