ELPAC: 2022–23 Summative Alternate ELPAC Moodle Training Site Opens November 1, 2022
ELPAC email update, October 18, 2022.
Dear LEA ELPAC Coordinator:
This is a reminder that the 2022–23 Summative Alternate ELPAC Moodle Training on the Moodle Training Site (Moodle) opens Tuesday, November 1, 2022. Certification is required for any LEA with students eligible for the Summative Alternate ELPAC. An eligible student is designated as an English learner and has an individualized education program specifying the use of an alternate assessment.
An LEA ELPAC coordinator or a designee must complete the certification course in Moodle for the Summative Alternate ELPAC—LEA Certification course by December 16, 2022, to meet the LEA training requirement.
Test examiners will need to complete the Summative Alternate ELPAC—Test Examiner Certification course prior to administering the assessment.
Alternate ELPAC Moodle Enrollment Keys: There are two Moodle enrollment keys for the Summative Alternate ELPAC training, allowing any LEA staff member to log on and access the resources for the Summative Alternate ELPAC. The LEA ELPAC coordinator will need to issue the appropriate enrollment keys to test examiners. To obtain the Moodle enrollment keys, the LEA ELPAC coordinator must log on to the Administration and Scoring Training (AST) website using the access code emailed on November 1, 2022.
Ordering Picture Cards: There will be a new sets of picture cards, one for each form of the Summative Alternate ELPAC. Be sure to securely destroy any picture cards from the operational field test. The LEA ELPAC coordinator is the only person with access to order picture cards. Picture cards may be ordered starting November 1, 2022 on the AST website.
Not all students will require the use of picture cards. Picture cards are part of optional individualization for the Alternate ELPAC and are designed for use by students who regularly use picture cards or an Augmentative and Alternative Communication device as an expressive mode of communication during daily instruction. LEA coordinators should work with special education staff to determine how many grade-level and grade-span sets of pictures cards should be ordered for each site.
Questions regarding training and administration of the Summative Alternate ELPAC can be emailed to the Sacramento County Office of Education (SCOE) ELPAC Project Team at email@example.com . Questions regarding Moodle can be emailed to SCOE at firstname.lastname@example.org.
