*Please note that beginning in the 2015-2016 school year, The OELPA replaced the OTELA as Ohio's official language acquisition assessment. That's great news! What's more, is that the Ohio Department of Education now offers a free online practice test for the OELPA! You can follow this link (https://login9.cloud1.tds.airast.org/student/V320/Pages/LoginShell.aspx?c=Ohio_PT) to the new online practice test!
This document includes sample lesson plans, a sample progress report, and practice tests designed to assist teachers of English Language Learners (ELLs) as they prepare their students for the Ohio Test of English Language Acquisition (OTELA). There are practice tests for each Ohio ELP standard in the listening, speaking, and writing domains. The content and vocabulary of each assessment includes both social and academic topics that are not grade specific.
