ELPAC Resources

The English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) is the required state test for English language proficiency that must be given to students whose primary language is a language other than English. In 2017-2018, the ELPAC replaced the California English Language Development Test (CELDT). California state law requires that public schools administer the ELPAC to eligible students in kindergarten (or year one of a transitional kindergarten program) through grade twelve.

The ELPAC is aligned with California’s 2012 English Language Development Standards, and is comprised of two separate assessments:

  1. Initial ELPAC — an initial identification of students as English learners
  2. Summative ELPAC — an annual summative assessment to measure an English learner's progress in learning English and to identify the student's ELP level
