Administration and Scoring Trainings Registration Information
The purpose of the Administration and Scoring Trainings for the 2017–18 Summative Assessment of the English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) is to train participants to:
- Standardize the administration of the ELPAC
- Reliably score constructed-response items in Speaking
- Train other qualified persons locally to administer the ELPAC
This training will be a “training-of-trainers” model. A portion of the training day will be divided into two groups: kindergarten through grade 5 in one room, and grades 6 through 12 in another room. It is recommended that you plan accordingly and bring one trainer for the lower grades and one trainer for the upper grades, if applicable.
Registration opens Tuesday, August 15, 2017. Only the local educational agency (LEA) ELPAC Coordinator can register participants for trainings. Registration is available online only via the registration page. The registration page can only be accessed with the secure access code provided in the e-mail to the LEA ELPAC Coordinator. An LEA may register staff members on a first-come, first-served basis up to the LEA’s maximum seat allocation. Subsequent registrants will be wait-listed for a possible last-minute slot in a training. Ten days prior to each training, available seats will be filled from the waiting list (see Waiting List section below). Participants must be registered and receive a registration confirmation e-mail in order to gain entrance to a workshop. Drop-ins may be turned away due to capacity limitations.
Within five working days, a confirmation of registration status will be e-mailed to each registrant at the e-mail address provided. Approximately one week before the workshop, a reminder e-mail will be sent to each confirmed participant.
Registration for each training will close when the training is full, or ten working days prior to the training, so please register early. LEA ELPAC Coordinators may submit registration over the district’s seat allocation, but these staff members will be placed on a waiting list. Staff members placed on the waiting list will receive an e-mail confirmation that they are on the waiting list and will be notified seven days prior to the training if a seat is available.
Check-in and Refreshments
Check-in for each workshop will begin at 7:30 a.m., and the training will run from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. Participants must stay for the entire training to become certified.
