ELPAC: 2024–25 Initial ELPAC
ELPAC email update, December 19, 2023.
Dear LEA ELPAC Coordinator:
The 2024–25 Initial ELPAC administration will consist of two new test forms that include both operational and embedded field test items. This will support the creation of an updated operational test form for the 2025–26 Initial ELPAC administration.
All LEAs will be participating to ensure that enough students in all grades respond to the field test items. Each new test form will include six to eight embedded field test items across all domains, and these forms will be distributed across all LEAs. There will also be updated Directions for Administration for each form and grade level or grade span. New Kindergarten through grade two Writing Answer Books for each form will be included in your primary or supplemental material orders.
Local educational agencies (LEAs) will not be able to reuse prior year's materials. However, neither the computer-based braille forms nor the emergency paper–pencil forms will include field test items for the 2024–25 Initial ELPAC administration. Additional details on the upcoming 2024–25 Initial ELPAC administration will be announced in future coffee session and communications.
Form assignments for the 2024–25 Initial ELPAC administration will be made available on the Form Assignments for the 2024–25 Initial ELPAC Administration web page in spring 2024. LEAs identified to participate in the Rotating Score Validation Process (RSVP) will also be notified in spring 2024 and the list will be posted on the Rotating Score Validation Process for the Initial ELPAC web page.
Questions about the ELPAC and all other topics regarding the 2024–25 Initial ELPAC administration should be directed to the LEA's assigned LEA Success Agent . Visit the California Outreach web page for other support options.
