ELPAC: 2022–23 Initial ELPAC AST Moodle is Now Open
ELPAC email update, April 25, 2022.
Dear LEA ELPAC Coordinator:
You are receiving this email because you are currently designated as the LEA ELPAC coordinator. This is a reminder that the 2022–23 Initial ELPAC Administration and Scoring Training (AST) Moodle Training Resources on the Moodle Training Site (Moodle) is now open.
Statewide training is mandatory. All LEA ELPAC coordinators, new and experienced, are required to log on to the AST website and select the [Training Verification] button. This will provide a current list of staff within the LEA who completed the Initial ELPAC training requirement. Once on the website, the LEA ELPAC coordinator will either check the Active box by the names of the active staff or notify the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) that the LEA has a Memorandum of Understanding in place with another LEA to provide testing, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. If the ELPAC coordinator or a designee is not listed as having completed the LEA certification for the Initial ELPAC, the LEA must decide who will need to complete the certification, which must be completed by August 5, 2022. After Moodle training opens, the list of the training status of active staff will be updated weekly and will include trainee names, dates of completion, and the title of the training completed.
The LEA ELPAC coordinator, or a designee, is responsible for overseeing test examiners' calibration progress and completion. For the Initial ELPAC, both new and experienced test examiners must calibrate annually and will be emailed a certificate of calibration upon the successful completion. The Initial ELPAC Examiner Training and Calibration course has been updated with training activities separated from calibration activities. All Speaking and Writing domain training quizzes are being updated with new training vignettes modeled after the Summative ELPAC.
To obtain the Moodle enrollment keys for all test examiners in the LEA, the registration access code that follows is needed:
ELPAC access code for ‹DISTRICT›: ‹PASSCODE›
The LEA ELPAC coordinator must log on to the AST website and select the [Initial ELPAC Moodle Training Site] button to access the keys.
LEA Trainer Moodle Account and Reporting Access
LEA trainer access needs to be set up for each administration. The LEA ELPAC coordinator is the only person with access to the enrollment keys and is, therefore, responsible for distributing these keys to appropriate LEA staff. The LEA ELPAC coordinator must also identify the LEA ELPAC trainer and must log on to the AST website , select the [Initial ELPAC Moodle Training Site] button, and request LEA trainer Moodle reporting access to view reports of test examiners' completion. The LEA ELPAC coordinator must submit the LEA trainer's name and email address to the ELPAC AST website. Each LEA may provide access for up to three trainers.
Moodle User Accounts
Individuals who already have accounts from a previous administration do not need to create a new account. LEA trainers who wish to create individual Moodle accounts for new staff can use the template posted in Moodle. Filling out and submitting a User Account file is an easy way to create accounts for all test examiners in the LEA. The file can be populated with staff members' names and email addresses. Populated files should be emailed to SCOE at email@example.com . Once the file is imported into Moodle, Moodle will send a confirmation email to each person listed in the file that a new account has been requested. Each person will need to confirm the account by selecting the link in the email confirmation. Instructions for using the Moodle User Account Template can be found in the 2021–22 Initial ELPAC Trainer's Resources course in Moodle.
LEA ELPAC coordinators should log on to the ELPAC AST website and enter the access code in the Submit code field. Select the [Initial ELPAC Moodle Training Site] button, which will open the web page to find the enrollment keys. Each LEA has four enrollment keys, one for each of the following courses: Test Examiner Training and Calibration, LEA Certification (kindergarten through grade twelve), LEA Certification (grades six through twelve), and Trainer Resources–Speaking or Training Resources–Writing.
Questions regarding training and scoring of the Initial ELPAC can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information can be found on the ELPAC Training web page on the ELPAC website.
LEA ELPAC coordinators should direct other questions about the Initial ELPAC to their LEA Success Agent .
