The ELPAC will be the successor to the California English Language Development Test (CELDT). The CELDT is the current required state test for English language proficiency that must be given to students whose primary language is other than English. CELDT will be will be given to students who are taking their initial English language test in the Fall of 2017. In February of 2018, students who have been identified as English Learners (EL) will be taking the ELPACT test.
The ELPAC practice tests give students, parents and families, teachers, administrators, and others the opportunity to become familiar with the types of test questions on the English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC). These practice tests include examples of all of the types of test questions that may appear in the actual Summative Assessment at each grade or grade span. In an actual test setting, an Examiner’s Manual, a Test Book, and/or an Answer Book are used. The test questions in the Practice Test are reproduced from these test materials.

Below we’ve enclosed links to the “English Learners and the Common Core: A Parent’s Toolkit.” This guide has been developed to help parents understand what the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are and how these standards will impact the academic success of English learners once they are implemented in the classroom. The guide provides information for parents to use when speaking with their child’s teacher, principal and other school staff to make sure he or she receives the learning supports to succeed academically.
The Toolkit includes:
• Background information on the opportunities and challenges that the Common Core Standards present for curriculum, instruction and assessment of English Learners
• Focus on Common Core teaching practices and what instruction should look like in the classroom
• Description of extra help English learners will need to meet the new Standards
• Talking points and questions for parents to insert the needs of English Learners in Common Core Standards dialogues and discussions at their district or school site and the CCSS can Help Your Children Succeed in School
