The California Department of Education (CDE) transitioned from the California English Language Development Test (CELDT) to the English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) as the state ELP assessment in 2018. The ELPAC is aligned with the 2012 California English Language Development Standards. It consists of two separate ELP assessments: one for the initial identification of students as English learners (ELs), and a second for the annual summative assessment to measure a students progress in learning English and to identify the student's level of ELP.
The SchoolCity Suite EL Reports are for historical reporting purposes only. No conversion process between the CELDT and ELPAC scores has been provided by the CDE.
ELPAC Reporting is currently available through Predefined Reports.
Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) reports on English proficiency objectives for English Learners. Lead Education Agencies (LEAs) receiving Title III funds must meet three Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives (AMAOs). AMAO 1 measures the percent of English Learner (EL) students making progress towards English proficiency, as measured by the California English Language Development Test (CELDT). AMAO 2 measures the percent of EL students attaining the English Language Proficiency level on the CELDT. The SchoolCity EL Reports support districts in meeting their state reporting requirements.
