English Learner Progress Indicator

This indicator, reported on the California School Dashboard, applies to districts and schools with students in grades 1–12.

What is this Indicator?

The English Learner Progress Indicator is one of several state indicators that the California Department of Education (CDE) reports on the California School Dashboard External link opens in new window or tab. (Dashboard). It represents the percentage of English learner students who are progressing towards English language proficiency. The CDE measures progress toward English language proficiency by comparing English Learner students’ results from the current English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) Summative to the prior year ELPAC Summative results.

The English Learner Progress Indicator is the only state indicator that reports on only one student group, the English learner student group.

This indicator is reported on the Dashboard for any district and school that enrolls English learner students.
