  • Google has released a patch for Chrome OS 56 that fixes the speaking recording issues AIR identified earlier. Chromebooks used for testing ELPA21 Speaking should be updated to Chrome OS 56.0.2924.110. We continue to recommend that all schools using Chromebooks take a practice test on the Chromebook and confirm that ELPA21 Speaking records correctly before administering an operational test to students.
