Summative ELPACInformation about the Summative English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC).
The Summative ELPAC measures how well English learner students are progressing with English language development in each of the four domains. The ELPAC is aligned with the 2012 California English Language Development Standards and assesses four domains: Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. The purpose of the Summative ELPAC is to measure progress toward English proficiency and to help determine if a student is ready to be reclassified. This is important to ensure that students continue to receive the support they need to do well in school.
