English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC)

The English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) was established in 2018. The ELPAC replaced the California English Language Development Test (CELDT), which became inoperative on June 30, 2018. The required State test, ELPAC, test students, whose primary language is a language other than English, to determine whether they are English Learners.
