Action Required! 2020-21 Summative ELPAC Test Materials Return or Destruction Certification
ELPAC email update, May 24, 2021.
Dear LEA ELPAC Coordinator:
The 2020–21 Summative ELPAC testing window closes on July 30, 2021. All Speaking domain scores must be entered into the Data Entry Interface by this date.
Return Completed Kindergarten Through Grade Two (K–2) Writing Materials
ETS must receive all completed K–2 Answer Books by August 16, 2021, or they will not be scored. Only completed ELPAC Writing domain Answer Books for K–2 students should be returned to ETS for scoring. Please read and follow the 2020–21 Summative ELPAC Packing and Return Instructions. Local educational agencies (LEAs) have the option to download and complete the ELPAC School Group List when returning Answer Books to serve as a reference for both the LEA and ETS as to what is being returned in each shipment. It is recommended that LEAs keep a copy of the ELPAC School Group List for their records to track the test materials being returned to ETS. Test materials must be returned in the white return cartons provided. To order additional white return cartons, please contact the California Technical Assistance Center (CalTAC).
Secure Destruction of the 2020–21 Summative ELPAC Materials
LEAs have the option to either securely destroy test materials locally or return materials to ETS for destruction.
