California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) System

English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC)

  • ELPAC is a state-required language test for all newly enrolled students whose primary language is not English.

    In order to assure that all students receive the best possible education, the state requires testing of all students whose home language is not English to determine if they are English Learners.  The test chosen by the State of California for English language assessment is the English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC).  The ELPAC identifies how well the students can speak, listen, read, and write in English.

    The law requires districts to use the assessment as a primary indicator of English proficiency for the initial identification of English Learners.

    • Aerobic capacity (timed mile run)
    • Body composition (height and weight)
    • Trunk extension strength
    • Upper body strength (push-ups)
    • Flexibility (sit and reach)
