The ELPAC Website

The English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) website serves as the portal for resources that a local educational agency (LEA) will need to administer the ELPAC.

News and Tips for the ELPAC Administration

English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) Test Operations Management System (TOMS) will be unavailable Wednesday, August 29 through Monday, September 3, 2018, for scheduled system downtime.

ELPAC Customer Service Center will be closed Monday, September 3, 2018, for the Labor Day holiday. All phone calls and emails will be returned when the office reopens on Tuesday, September 4, 2018.

For those who are scoring the Initial ELPAC locally, the conversion table and preliminary score sheet and instructions will be available in the TOMS using the [Help] icon by Friday, July 13, 2018. Additionally, the Initial ELPAC Export Student Score Data File Layout will be posted on the Score Reporting section of this website by that date.

We are excited to announce that the Local Scoring Tool (LST) will be available July 9, 2018. For more information about the LST and its functions, view the LST Webcast Archive. Two new user roles have been added for staff who will be working with the LST. The Adding Users Quick Start Guide is now available. Keep an eye out for additional resources coming soon, including the LST Quick Start Guide and the updated TOMS User Guide (coming early July).

When returning Summative ELPAC test materials, an LEA may combine secure, scannable test materials from schools in a single white carton, as long as the test materials are properly sorted and banded by school and grade with the correct Group Identification Sheet on top of each grade. Test materials may be returned at any time after the assessment is completed and do not have to be held until the final pickup date.

The Initial ELPAC will be administered beginning July 1, 2018, and will be year-round (July 1–June 30).

Information about the ELPAC test administration is available on the Test Administration web page.
