English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC)

The English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) is the required state test for English language proficiency given to eligible k-12 students whose primary language is a language other than English. The ELPAC assesses English proficiency in four domains: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing.

  • Initial ELPAC test helps identify English language (EL) students who need to develop their skills in English.

  • Summative ELPAC test helps determine how well E.L. students are progressing annually.

  • Alternate ELPAC - Operational Field Test 2021-2022 is for E.L. students with the most significant cognitive disabilities whose active individual educational program (IEP) designates the use of alternate assessments.

Read instructions to access the ELPAC student report or go directly to the Q Parent Portal to view your student's report.

The Starting Smarter website includes information on student score reports, sample test questions, parent-teacher conferences and other no-cost resources in English and Spanish.
