CAASPP and ELPAC: Spring Assessment Update video
CAASPP and ELPAC email update, January 11, 2021.
Dear LEA CAASPP Coordinator, LEA ELPAC Coordinator, CAASPP Test Site Coordinator, or Site ELPAC Coordinator:
Welcome back and Happy New Year! The California Department of Education (CDE) and ETS know that local educational agencies (LEAs) are working hard to prepare for the spring assessments. We provided an update before the break on what LEAs can expect in terms of support and resources in the Spring 2021 Assessment Administration Information email.
Available Now: What's New Video
The Spring Assessment Update video is now available. This presentation is a high-level overview of the recent changes and decisions made to accommodate remote testing and is not intended to replace more detailed information that will be available on the spring administration websites.
(Coming Soon): Spring Test Administration Toolkits
To assist LEAs with the spring 2021 administration, ETS is releasing two new websites—one for educators and the other, for parents, guardians, and students—that will each offer instructions, videos, and guidelines. These websites will contain new materials as soon as they are available. Bookmark the following links and visit them often for the most current information about CAASPP and ELPAC testing in spring 2021:
- Website for Educators
- Website for Parents/Guardians and Students
The CDE and ETS will continue to work through the details that will help you successfully navigate the upcoming 2020–21 CAASPP and ELPAC test administrations. Additional information will be sent through the weekly Assessment Spotlight emails from the CDE and, as needed, by the California Technical Assistance Center.
