- The TELPAS tutorial was created to familiarize students with online testing.

Perform the Headset Test prior to starting the TELPAS Tutorial to ensure the headset functions correctly. The Headset Test is located in the TestNav app under the Practice Tests link.
TELPAS Listening & Speaking Practice Sets
- The TELPAS Listening & Speaking Practice Sets were created to familiarize students with online listening and speaking test items. The practice sets allow students to listen to test items and record speaking responses. Perform the Headset Test prior to starting the TELPAS Listening & Speaking Practice Sets to ensure the headset functions correctly. The Headset Test is located in the TestNav app under the Practice Tests link.
TELPAS Reading Practice Tests
- The TELPAS Reading Practice Tests include a sampling of reading passages and test questions. The purpose of the practice tests is to familiarize students with the online interface, the available tools, and the types of test items. The practice tests should not be used to evaluate students’ level of language proficiency. To generate a score report, the student must submit their final answers.
TELPAS Released Tests
- The Texas Education Agency (TEA) provides TELPAS listening & speaking and reading released tests in the online interface used for the spring administration. Districts can administer released tests to students for diagnostic purposes. TestNav 8 does not generate a test summary. If you would like to score students' practice tests, you should direct students to record their answers on a separate sheet of paper. Then you can use the relevant answer key below to score the practice tests. To determine a student's proficiency level rating, use the appropriate TELPAS raw score conversion table located on TEA’s website.
NOTE: Students must complete tests in one sitting. Student’s answers cannot be saved to resume later.
