ELPAC: 2023–24 Summative ELPAC Administration and Scoring Training Information
ELPAC email update, September 19, 2023.
Dear LEA ELPAC Coordinator:
The Summative ELPAC testing window is open from February 1, 2024 through May 31, 2024. To prepare for test administration, the Sacramento County Office of Education is hosting the 2023–24 Summative ELPAC Administration and Scoring Training (AST) for local educational agency (LEA) ELPAC coordinators and ELPAC test examiners to take via the Moodle Training Site (Moodle) . The training is available from October 16, 2023, through May 31, 2024. The AST training resources in Moodle include the following:
- Two LEA certification courses (kindergarten through grade twelve or grades six through twelve)
- Training videos
- Test examiner training quizzes and calibration quizzes
- PDF versions of the training binder
- Moodle tutorial videos
Statewide LEA Certification: Statewide training is mandatory. ELPAC regulations require annual training for all LEAs, even those who do not have students who are English learners (ELs). Each LEA ELPAC coordinator or designee is required to complete the online Summative ELPAC certification course in Moodle annually to meet the training requirement for the LEA. A certificate of completion will be produced upon completion of the LEA certification course. The LEA certification course takes approximately two to three hours and must be completed by December 8, 2023. LEA ELPAC coordinators and other test examiners can fulfill their training requirements by accessing the virtual training modules within Moodle .
Alternatively, an LEA who does not have any EL students may either complete the certification course or enter into a Memorandum of Understanding with a neighboring LEA that has completed the certification course. If the primary LEA subsequently enrolls an EL student, the neighboring LEA will administer the Summative ELPAC.
Test Examiner Training and Calibration: The LEA ELPAC coordinator, or a designee, is responsible for overseeing test examiners' calibration progress and completion. For the Summative ELPAC, both new and experienced test examiners must calibrate annually and will be emailed a certificate of completion upon successful completion of calibration, which they should then email to their coordinator. The Test Examiner Training and Calibration course is divided into sections specific to grade levels and grade spans. Test examiners need only calibrate the grade levels or grade spans they are administering and scoring.
Digital Training Binders: Training binders will be available in digital format in the Trainer Resources course in Moodle.
Moodle Enrollment Keys: Enrollment keys are required to access the training in Moodle. More information about obtaining keys will be provided by email on October 16, 2023.
