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. Summative ELPAC Testing Window Closed

    The Summative ELPAC testing window for the 2022–23 administration is now closed, along with the Data Entry Interface (DEI) for entering K–12 Speaking scores, which closed May 31, 2023.

  2. Creating UPS Labels to Return Summative ELPAC K–2 Materials

    If the CDS code does not populate the LEA's shipping address when creating labels to return Summative ELPAC K–2 writing materials in the UPS system, the user can fill in the required information manually to create the shipping label. In the Items Returning drop-down menu, select "SAOP – Scorable" for the K–2 writing booklets of tested students. Please be sure to return scoreable materials in the white carton provided, and schedule for pickup by June 16 to ensure return to ETS by the June 23 deadline.

  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.
