TELPAS Calibration in Progress
Thank you to Kristal, Gabi, and Amie for their presentation of information related to TELPAS assessment. Please let us know if you have questions. Right now everyone should be focused on completing online calibration and collecting writing samples (Grade 2-5). PLEASE do not delay in completing the calibration. In the unlikely event that you were not succesful on the first 2 attempts, you must attend supplemental training (see below).
If you fail both Calibration attempts then you will need to register and attend Supplemental Training. Below are dates, locations. and eCampus #s. *Note: Participants need to bring a laptop. The trainings are from 3:30 to 5:00 p.m.
