All individuals must enter a keyword to create a new user profile in the TELPAS Online Training Center. Educators will be able to print their own certificates from the scoring summary tab.

III. TELPAS Student Tutorials, Reading Practice/Released Tests

The TELPAS tutorial was created to help students become familiar with online testing. The tutorial will show students how to move through a test, use tools in the test, and work with reading, listening, and speaking questions. To access the TestNav 8 versions of the TELPAS Tutorial, Reading Practice Tests, and Reading Released Tests you will need to go to the TestNav 8 login screen in the installable TestNav app and click on the "Practice Tests" link. (To download the installable TestNav app, please click here)

IV. TELPAS Headset Test
It is recommended that you perform the Headset Test prior to starting the TELPAS Student Tutorial to ensure the headset is setup correctly. The Headset Test is located in the TestNav app under the "Practice Tests" link.

V. TELPAS Pearson Practice Training Site
CTCs/Administrators can request a username and password to access this site. This practice site is intended for administrators who wish to practice creating and managing sessions. This site is often referred to as the 'brown site' as you will notice the brown header on the landing page of the interface.
