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 Round 1 or Round 2 and for any supplemental orders. The excess materials are calculated by determining the difference between the sum of the number of tests scored and 90 percent of the tests ordered by the LEA. An LEA is responsible for using, and returning for scoring, 90 percent of the Answer Books ordered, including braille and large print, excluding the overage included in the shipment. LEAs will also be invoiced for any additional Examiner’s Manuals ordered during the Supplemental Ordering Window.

Summative Assessment Pre‐identification Labels (Pre-ID)

Pre‐ID labels include basic student information, such as name and grade, along with a bar-code identifier linked to additional demographic information provided by the LEA through the California Longitudinal Pupil Achievement Data System. School and LEA staff authorized to handle ELPAC test materials may adhere the Pre‐ID label to the student’s Answer Book. LEAs can place an order for Pre-ID labels only once in the Round 1 ordering window and once in the Round 2 ordering window.

Round 1 Pre-ID label: Round 1 Pre‐ID labels are shipped to LEAs based on the date the Pre-ID label order is approved in the Test Operations Management System. There are four opportunities to order labels in Round 1. $0.38 Per student
Round 2 Pre-ID label: If a Round 1 order was placed, the Round 2 Pre-ID labels order will only include records for students enrolled after the Round 1 order was placed, or for students whose demographic data has changed.

Rescoring Student Responses

An LEA may request the rescoring of a student’s Answer Book for the Summative ELPAC. There are four domains: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. The LEA can only request the entire test (all domains) to be rescored. For the Speaking domain, ETS will verify what was marked on the Answer Book by the test examiner.
