TUSD Testing Information


ELPAC Online Practice Tests

The English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) is the successor to the California English Language Development Test (CELDT). Beginning in 2017–18, the ELPAC is the required state test for English language proficiency (ELP) that must be given to students whose primary language is a language other than English. The California Department of Education (CDE) expects to be fully transitioned from the CELDT to the ELPAC as the state's assessment of ELP by 2018–19.

State and federal law require that local educational agencies administer a state test of ELP to eligible students in kindergarten (or year one of a two-year kindergarten program, sometimes referred to as “transitional kindergarten”) through grade twelve (ages 3-21). The ELPAC is aligned with California’s 2012 English Language Development Standards, and is comprised of two separate ELP assessments:

1. Initial Assessment (IA)—an initial identification of students as English learners

2. Summative Assessment (SA)—an annual summative assessment to measure an English learner's progress in learning English and to identify the student's ELP level

TUSD has been identified as a Program Improvement (PI) Local Educational Agency (LEA) District in Year 3, and has been placed on Corrective Action 6 Cohort 3. As a requirement of the Elementary and Secondary Act (ESEA)/The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 the District revised the LEA Plan to document steps to fully implement the State Board of Education (SBE) assigned corrective action.

Corrective action is the collective name given to the steps an LEA must take that substantially and directly respond to instructional, managerial and organizational problems in the LEA.  Responses will lead to students achieving proficiency in the core academic subjects of ELA and math.
