ELPAC Fee-Based Services

Summative ELPAC Excess Materials Orders

At the end of each testing year, Educational Testing Service (ETS) will invoice local educational agencies (LEAs) for excess materials ordered during the Primary and Supplemental Test Materials Ordering Windows. The excess materials are calculated by determining the difference between the sum of the number of Answer Books ordered (including braille) versus the number of Answer Books ordered (including braille) that were returned for scoring. Any overages are excluded from these calculations.

Excess Braille Packages (K–2) $322.78 Per excess Braille Package

Rescoring Student Responses

For a fee, an LEA may request the rescoring of a student’s Writing Answer Book for the Summative ELPAC. An LEA must call the California Technical Assistance Center (CalTAC) at 800-955 2954 to make the request to have the responses on a student’s test rescored. The LEA must provide the required data for the student—Statewide Student Identifier, school, and LEA information. A purchase order must also be provided at the time of the request.

Of the four ELPAC domains—Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing—the LEA can request only the Writing domain to be rescored. The rescore service is not available for the Listening, Speaking, and Reading domains. The score data for these domains is collected electronically and verified before reporting.

All requests to rescore a student response must be requested by the last business day in August 2020.

Any scoring or rescoring request should be submitted no later than the cutoff date in order to be reported for accountability purposes. Scoring or rescore requests received after this date, but no later than the last business day of September, will be scored for purposes of providing a score report and LEA student data files only.
