The ELPAC Web Site

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

News and Tips for the ELPAC Administration

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, be sure to tune in to the LST Webcast on May 16, 2018, at 1 p.m. Two new user roles have been added for staff who will be working with the LST.

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.
