Ohio English Language Proficiency Screener and Assessment
Information on OELPS and OELPA Paper Orders
OELPA paper tests are available in two formats when ordering in TIDE:
- The Supplemental Writing Test Booklet, which is only for kindergarten and grade 1 students taking the OELPA online; and
- The Paper Test Booklet, which is for students in grades K-12 who cannot take the OLEPA online.
When ordering the Paper Test Booklet, districts must include a comment indicating the reason why a paper test is required (e.g., IEP or 504 plan or there is a cultural/religious situation). If districts do not indicate the reason for the Paper Test Booklet, the Department will not approve the order.
When ordering the Paper Test Booklet for the OELPS, the same policy applies. Districts must indicate why the student will not test online. OELPS paper requests are sent to Paula Mahaley by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
