Summative English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC)

  • English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC)

    What is ELPAC?  
    The English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) is California’s assessment system that is used to determine the English language proficiency of students whose primary language is not English. The ELPAC is aligned with the 2012 California English Language Development Standards and assesses four domains: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. The Summative ELPAC is given only to students who have previously been identified as an English learner based upon Initial ELPAC results. The Summative ELPAC measures how well they are progressing with English development in each of the four domains.

    When Do TVUSD Students Take the ELPAC?
    The Summative Assessment is given only to students in grades K–12 who have been identified as English learners each spring. These students will take the assessment every year until they are reclassified as fluent English proficient. Students with disabilities who cannot take one or more domains of the ELPAC with allowed universal tools, designated supports, or accommodations will take an alternate assessment(s), as noted in their individualized education program.
