Ohio’s Early Learning Assessment Teacher Training
Early Learning Assessment (ELA) training is required for teachers and support persons who will be using the assessment. The following options for training will be provided.
The Early Learning Assessment (ELA) Initial Training is for new users who have not previously completed an ELA training. It is designed for early childhood professionals that will be observing, assessing, and scoring the ELA.
The Early Learning Assessment for Support Teachers is designed specifically for assistant teachers, paraprofessionals, and educational aides and is an online training for anyone who will be supporting a fully ELA-trained teacher.
The ELA Technology Virtual Training is for educators who have completed the 9-hour Early Learning Assessment (ELA) training in a previous year but who have not completed the Content and Simulation Assessments to receive a certificate.
