Ohio English Language Proficiency Screener

7/30/2018

Beginning with the 2018-2019 school year, districts are required to use the Ohio English Language Proficiency Screener (OELPS) as part of the state’s standardized identification process for English learners. The OELPS will be available on Aug. 1, 2018. See “Ohio’s Screener for English Learners” available on the OELPA webpage. Additional information is found on the District Test Coordinator Bulletin. As part of the statewide transition, districts must fully implement the OELPS by or before Oct. 1, 2018.
