Participation and Testing Windows

Will the 95 Percent Testing Requirement Be Waived?

No. Federal requirements state that LEAs test not less than 95 percent of students and no waivers of these requirements are available for 2021–22 testing. LEAs are expected to work toward meeting this target.

Will the Summative ELPAC Testing Window Be Extended?

The testing windows for the Summative ELPAC and Alternate ELPAC operational field test are both scheduled to close on May 31, 2022. This window cannot be extended because Summative ELPAC scoring must be completed and preparations to roll over ELPAC information must be finalized in time for the opening of the Initial ELPAC and Alternate Initial ELPAC testing windows in July.

Can a CAASPP Test Administration Window Be Extended?

While there is no extension for the CAASPP administration, reach out to the LEA’s Success Agent to adjust the end date for the LEA. The end date needs to be within the LEA’s instructional calendar. Send the request as soon as possible so the changes can happen within the current update schedule.
