The ELPAC Website

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

News and Tips for the ELPAC Administration

  1. Student Score Data File

    Newly enrolled students that tested in a different LEA are now available in the Student Score Data File.

  2. ELPAC Administration for Transitional Kindergarten Students

    For 2023–24, LEAs are required to administer the Initial ELPAC or Initial Alternate ELPAC to all eligible students enrolled in kindergarten—including students in transitional kindergarten (TK), which is defined as year one of a two-year kindergarten program. LEAs will continue to follow the same process for identifying potential EL students and annually assessing EL students.

  3. Initial ELPAC RSVP Must Use Scannable K–2 Answer Books

    LEAs that are selected for RSVP, must use scannable K–2 Answer Books. LEAs that are part of RSVP cannot use answer books from previous years. View the list of LEAs that are participating in 2023–24 on the Rotating Score Validation Process for the Initial ELPAC Web page.
