Students taking the ELPT utilize an online platform to interact with content and to submit their answers. The way each answer is entered depends on the item type (e.g., selected response, drag and drop, spoken response, etc.). Each domain is tested separately, and all sessions are untimed.
Tests are administered according to grade band and in the order of the domains: listening, reading, writing, speaking. A school may choose to administer one or two domains a day to a group of students. More information will be available in the ELPT Test Administrator Manual.
