ELPA21 Tools, Supports, & Accommodations
The OSPI Guidelines on Tools, Supports, & Accommodations have been finalized and posted. This guide includes information to support testing of students taking the Smarter Balanced, ELPA21, EOC, MSP, and HSPE. The guidelines contain important updates and clarifications for the ELPA21 Assessment. Please note that some supports in this manual will differ from ELPA21 Consortium Accessibility and Accommodations Manual. In such cases, the current version of the state assessment guidelines will take precedent.

Following are the locations where the guide may be found.
