ELPAC (English Language Proficiency Assessments for California)
The English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) is aligned with the 2012 California English Language Development Standards. The ELPAC 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 (cde.ca.gov).
- Grades K-12
- English Learners Only
- Test Administration
- Initial Identification - When student enrolls with Excel Academy - Dates and Locations TBD (Assessment will be administered by trained proctors.)
- Annual Summative Assessment - Beginning in February
- Results are provided by the California Department of Education and sent to the school. Once received, results are mailed to the parents with a letter explaining student scores.
English Learners (EL) are targeted for ELPAC testing when the Home Language Survey indicates that their primary home language is a language other than English and are tested during the school year.
