The ELPAC (English Language Proficiency Assessments for California) is the state-mandated test for determining English language proficiency in students K-12. It is administered first as an initial assessment to newly enrolled students whose primary language is not English, as indicated on a home language survey. It is then administered annually as a summative assessment to those students previously identified as English language learners, for the purposes of reclassification. The ELPAC is aligned with the 2012 California English Language Development Standards.
