State and federal law require that local educational agencies administer a state test of English language proficiency to eligible students in kindergarten through grade twelve.
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.
The ELPAC consists 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 English language proficiency.
Information regarding the English Language Proficiency Assessments for California can be found on the found on the California Department of Education’s (CDE) website.
Summer administration of the 2022-2023 Initial ELPAC will take place at the Language Development Programs, 155 Visions, Building 2, Irvine, CA 92620.
