Summative Assessment Administration and Scoring Trainings
The English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) Summative Assessment testing window is February 1, 2018, through May 31, 2018. To prepare for this test administration, there will be 24 Summative Assessment Administration and Scoring Trainings held statewide.
Attendance at Statewide Trainings
Each local educational agency (LEA) has been allocated a specific number of seats to attend the ELPAC Summative Assessment Administration and Scoring Trainings. This is a mandatory training for each LEA who will be administering the new ELPAC. Representatives from all LEAs, including those trained for the Summative Field Test administration in the fall of 2017, must also attend one of the trainings below.
All LEA and/or county staff who intend to provide a regional training must also attend this training before conducting their own. The training will follow a "training-of-trainers" model, designed so that attendees can provide in-person training to their own LEA.
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.
The California Department of Education-sponsored statewide trainings will take place from October 24, 2017, through December 13, 2017. Trainings are scheduled for the following dates and locations:

Summative Assessment Administration and Scoring Trainings Registration
Registration will be on a first-come, first-served basis, until each training site is full. LEAs may register all of their staff for one location, or each participant for separate locations.
Please note that all ELPAC Test Examiners are required to be trained to administer the ELPAC 2017–18 Summative Assessment. To accommodate your LEA’s training needs, many regional workshops around the state will be available. As each becomes available, the regional workshops will be posted on the ELPAC Web site on the Regional Trainings Web page.
