The Louisiana Educational Assessment Program (LEAP) 2025 is a statewide assessment program for students in grades 3 through high school to measure student knowledge and skills in key courses: English Language Arts (ELA), Mathematics, Science and Social Science.
A student’s results on the LEAP 2025 are evaluated along with a student’s report cards and benchmark assessments to measure academic performance and ensure the student is ready to move onto the next level of study. The aggregate results are also used in determining a school’s performance score.
Students with disabilities may be eligible to take LEAP Connect.
For more information on LEAP 2025 and LEAP Connect, visit the Louisiana Department of Education (LDOE) website.

Annually, the LDOE publishes practice tests in English language arts (ELA), math, science, and social studies to help students prepare for the LEAP 2025 statewide tests.
Practice tests may help you better understand how the tests compare to classroom work, and see sample questions. Talk with your child’s teachers to see how they plan to use the practice tests as part of their lessons, and how you might help walk your child through the practice tests at home to help familiarize him or her with the format and features, and answer any questions he or she might have.
For more information on how to access LEAP 2025 practice tests, see this handout.
