English Language Proficiency Assessments of California (ELPAC)
The ELPAC test is used to measure how well students in kindergarten through twelfth grade understand English when it is not their primary language.
The Initial ELPAC is used to find out if a student is an English learner who needs support to learn English or is proficient in English. Your child will only take the Initial ELPAC one time. The Initial ELPAC score report is divided into two different areas: oral language and written language. These areas are combined to give an overall score.
- Testing occurs within 30 days of a student’s enrollment in a California public school if a language other than English is marked on the Home Language Survey as a primary language.
- The assessment is scored locally, and scores are available within 24 hours.
The Summative ELPAC is used to measure the progress your child is making toward learning English. The Summative ELPAC score report is divided into two areas: oral and written language. The oral language score is made up of the listening and speaking areas, and the written language score is made up of the reading and writing areas.
- Testing occurs between February 1- May 31 annually
- Score reports are available 4-6 weeks after the student takes the assessment.
Operational Field Test: The Summative Alternate ELPAC is used to measure the progress your child is making toward learning English. Only students with the most significant cognitive disabilities, and whose individualized education program (IEP) team has designated the use of an alternate assessment can take the Summative Alternate ELPAC. Students are able to use their preferred communication modes to respond to expressive or receptive items. It is given each year until the student is reclassified.
- Testing will occur between November 1, 2021 – February 15, 2022
- In future years it will be administered February 1 – May 31 annually
- Score reports will be available in Summer of 2022
Coming July 2022: The Initial Alternate ELPAC is used to find out if a student is an English learner who needs support to learn English, or is proficient in English. Only students with the most significant cognitive disabilities, and whose individualized education program (IEP) team has designated the use of an alternate assessment can take the Initial Alternate ELPAC. Your child will only take the Initial Alternate ELPAC one time. Students are able to use their preferred communication modes to respond to expressive or receptive items.
