 TELPAS Student Registration Window

The window to import student registration files for TELPAS to the Assessment Management System opens January 9, 2019. Districts can continue to update student data through the testing window, which closes April 5, 2019.

If your district chose to have Pearson load students using PEIMS data, you may import a student registration file to update student information for existing students or add students who are new to your district.

If your district chose NOT to have Pearson load any student data, your district is required to submit a student registration file containing all students who will participate in the 2019 TELPAS administration.

    Is there a requirement that students do not skip lines in the writing when doing the tell pass writing?

    • bhudson says:

      No there is no such requirement. Writing samples should be authentic writing assignments from the student’s classes and if skipping lines is allowed that is OK. Writing samples are holistically scored by persons in your distinct, not an outsider or AI.
