Before your students take the LEAP, they need practice and preparation to make sure they’re ready for the spring assessment. With LEAP practice tests, getting ready for the real LEAP tests is easier than ever — your students will be able to bound ahead to new learning in no time!
Here’s everything you need to know about LEAP assessments, LEAP practice tests, and preparing your students.
What is LEAP 2025?
Louisiana Educational Assessment Program (LEAP) 2025 are annual tests given to students beginning in third grade in order to assess their mastery of state learning standards. The tests are used in conjunction with report cards, classroom work, and educator-created tests to provide an understanding of students’ academic achievement and identify students in need of greater support.
LEAP tests cover the following subjects:
- English language arts (grades 3–8)
- Mathematics (grades 3–8)
- Science (grades 3–8)
- Social studies (grades 3–8)
Grades 4 and 8 also take the National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP), which informs statewide performance reports but does not return scores for individual students.
LEAP 2025 high school end-of-course exams cover:
- English I
- English II
- Algebra I
- U.S. History
In order to graduate, high school students must pass one EOC test in each of three pairs:
- Mathematics: Algebra or Geometry
- Biology or U.S. History
- English: English II or III for students who entered high school before 2017-2018; English I or II for students who entered high school in or after 2017-2018
Exceptions are available to account for spring 2020 assessments that were canceled due to COVID-19.
All LEAP tests are delivered online, with the option provided to schools to administer paper tests for grade 3 only. The 2022 testing window is shorter for paper-based tests:
- Grade 3 paper-based ELA and math: April 27–29, 2022
- Grade 3 paper-based science and social studies: May 2–3, 2022
- Grades 3–8 computer-based tests: April 25–May 25
- High school EOC exams: April 11–May 13 (EOC exams may also be administered in the fall and summer.)
All LEAP tests are timed; time periods depend on grade level and exam subject. Most tests, especially for the lower grades, range between 60- and 90-minute limits. LEAP Connect assessments are available for students with significant cognitive disabilities.
In the past, poor LEAP test scores in 4th and 8th grade automatically resulted in students being held back a year, but beginning with the 2017-2018 school year, that policy was changed to allow for greater flexibility in addressing low LEAP test scores. The local education agency now determines whether to promote or retain a low-scoring student. Regardless of that decision, such students must be provided with an individual academic improvement plan designed to address the subject areas where they scored poorly. Schools can provide opportunities for tutoring, summer classes, or other approaches to support students without hampering their progress in other subject areas.
How to Use LEAP Practice Tests to Prepare Your Students
Every year, the Louisiana Department of Education publishes practice tests in every subject area and grade level tested by LEAP. These LEAP practice tests give you and your students the chance to become familiar with both the type of content they will be tested on and the question styles they can expect on the real LEAP test.
Some of these question styles include:
- Multiple choice
- Evidence-based selected response
- Multiple select
- Technology-enhanced items
- Prose constructed response
- Keypad input
With LEAP practice tests, your students can gain confidence for test day — and be sure they have the practical skills to navigate the computer-based test.
LEAP Practice Tests Are Available Now in Edulastic
To make administering the LEAP practice tests as easy as possible, Edulastic has already uploaded the LEAP practice tests to the Edulastic Public Library. By setting up a free account, you can introduce your students to the Edulastic testing environment — and help them get familiar with the LEAP practice test content as well as the virtual testing tools they’ll need to know for test day.
With Edulastic, your students can practice using the exact same device they’ll use for the real LEAP exam, whether laptop, tablet, or desktop computer. They’ll learn the keyboarding and navigation skills they need to get from the first question to their final answer on the LEAP test, while dragging and dropping, filling information into tables, creating equations, and using the right keyboard commands along the way.
