English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC)

ELPAC Logo

State and federal law require that local educational agencies administer a state test of English language proficiency (ELP) to eligible students in kindergarten through grade twelve. As of February 1, 2018 the California Department of Education (CDE) has transitioned from the CELDT to the ELPAC as the state ELP assessment. The ELPAC is aligned with the 2012 California English Language Development Standards. It is comprised of two separate ELP assessments: one for the initial identification of students as English learners (ELs), and a second for the annual summative assessment to measure a student’s progress in learning English and to identify the student's level of ELP. Visit the California Department of Education ELPAC page for more information.
