About This Manual

This 2022–23 Initial ELPAC Online Test Administration Manual provides information and instructions about test preparation and in-person and remote administration of the computer-based Initial ELPAC, as well as the paper–pencil test for the Writing domain for students in kindergarten through grade two (K–2). The intended users of this manual are staff who play a role in the administration of the Initial ELPAC, including LEA ELPAC coordinators, site ELPAC coordinators, ELPAC TEs, and proctors.

Additional information and instructions about the Initial ELPAC all domain PPT have been added to this manual. Use these sections to become familiar with the general rules for the PPT, how to prepare for the assessment, and what students will experience when participating in the assessment. TEs should become familiar with this section well in advance of the test administration date to make sure that materials for distribution to students are prepared and made available prior to the administration of the test.
