OELPA Testing

June 9, 2017

Dear Parents,

Throughout the school year, students participate in school level and state level assessments to help teachers and administrators identify the needs of all students. Ohio Administrative Code, Section 3301-13-02, requires that Ohio public school districts administer the Ohio English Language Proficiency Assessment (OELPA) to all identified English Language Learners in grades K-12. The OELPA is the assessment adopted by the Ohio Department of Education that measures English language knowledge and skills.

The OELPA is designed to measure the performance of English language learners as they progress through their K-12 education and work towards achieving college and career readiness. The OELPA is also used by the state to exit a student for the English Language Learning program.

There are four areas on the OELPA; Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking. The listening, reading, and writing sections are administered in a group setting. The speaking section is administered individually. The tests were developed to assess both academic and social language and will be administered online.

To access a copy of your child’s OELPA results from the Spring 2017 OELPA administration, please click here: If you have any additional questions, please contact your building principal.
