ELPAC (English Language Proficiency Assessments for California)

The ELPAC is the successor to the California English Language Development Test (CELDT). The ELPAC is the required state test for English language proficiency that must be given to students whose primary language is other than English and is aligned with the 2012 California English Language Development Standards. It consists of two separate 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. Additional information about the ELPAC can be found on the CDE website or on
