Summative ELPAC Testing Window Closes May 31, 2022
ELPAC email update, May 17, 2022.
Dear LEA ELPAC Coordinator:
Summative ELPAC Testing Window Closing Soon
As we near the end of the Summative ELPAC testing window on May 31, 2022, the CDE and ETS want to thank all of the LEAs for their diligence with testing so far this year. We ask LEA coordinators to ensure that all four domains are submitted for each student and Speaking scores are entered into the Data Entry Interface . Domains started and not completed will be submitted at the end of the testing window. The ELPAC Student Completion Status Report , updated daily at 8 a.m., will provide information to the LEA on which students are missing completed domains. LEAs that completed MIDs may have affected their completion rates as some domains will be applied to the previous SSID. Please work with site coordinators to ensure students who are marked as not completed are not testing using a retired SSID. Results for a student who completed testing using a now-retired SSID will merge automatically with the new SSID.
For those students meeting reclassification criteria during the Summative ELPAC window, we recommend that LEAs complete reclassification submissions to CALPADS the week of May 16, 2022, to ensure that the students' English language acquisition status will be updated on or before May 31, 2022.
- Reclassified students who tested fewer than one domain in the Oral Language composite and one domain in the Written Language composite will be excluded from aggregated reporting, and no Student Score Reports (SSRs) will be generated.
- Reclassified students who tested at least one domain in the Oral Language composite and one domain in the Written Language composite will be included in aggregated reporting, and SSRs will be generated. If an LEA wishes to exclude these students from aggregated reporting and SSRs, then a STAIRS case must be submitted on or before May 31, 2022, to reset the test, as the students are no longer eligible for testing.
It is recommended that LEAs submit all Security and Test Administration Incident Reporting System (STAIRS) cases by May 24, 2022, to ensure that cases are approved with adequate time to allow students to complete testing by May 31, if necessary.
Return Completed K–2 Writing Materials
Test materials for the K–2 Writing domain should be returned upon completion.
The last date for pickup is June 15, 2022, meaning materials must leave the LEA to be sent to ETS on or before June 15, 2022. Ensure you have proper tracking information. Scannable test materials must be returned in the white return cartons provided.
When returning Answer Books, LEAs have the option to download and complete the ELPAC School Group List to serve as a reference for the LEA as to what is being returned in each shipment. It is recommended that LEAs keep a copy of this document for their records to track the test materials being returned to ETS.
If additional white return cartons are needed, contact the LEA's assigned LEA Success Agent . Visit the California Outreach web page for other support options.
