  • Reminder: In order to receive scores for any paper and pencil accommodated test forms that have been administered in your school or district, all responses MUST be entered into the DEI. Please note, the DEI is only required for paper and pencil accommodated test forms, NOT the K and 1 Online Writing Supplement. Once you have completed entering paper and pencil test responses into the DEI you should immediately return these materials to MI.  If you have any questions about entering responses into the DEI or shipping materials back to MI, please call the IDOE HelpDesk at iowaelpa21helpdesk@air.org or call 1-855-873-5710.

  • Notice: If you have any paper and pencil testers in your district or school, please note, these students will also appear eligible for the online tests. However, paper and pencil testers ONLY need to take the paper and pencil test.  Additionally, if all your students (both paper and pencil and online testers) have completed testing, the participation reports will not show 100% completion for online tests, since paper and pencil testers are eligible for online tests.  If you have any questions about participation reports, please call the IDOE HelpDesk at iowaelpa21helpdesk@air.org or call 1-855-873-5710.

  • NoticeChrome 57 ELPA21 Recorder Issue

    AIR has recently identified an issue with the ELPA21 voice recorder in Chrome OS 57. The issue is currently being investigated. Schools and districts using the Chrome operating system should continue to administer ELPA21 tests on Chrome OS 56 using patch number 56.0.2924.110 or above until a fix for Chrome OS 57 is deployed.

    AIR recommends that all schools that administer ELPA21 tests on Chromebooks take a practice test on the model of Chromebook they are using and verify that ELPA21 Speaking records correctly before administering the test to students.
