Instructions for accessing the English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) trainings
Select your role:
The LEA certification course is designed to prepare LEA coordinators, or their designee, to train test examiners to administer and locally score the Initial ELPAC. This course replaces the statewide in-person training. It consists
of sections, each with a video or videos to view. Completion of one section is required in order to unlock the next section. All sections must be completed in order to obtain certification. The course does not have to be completed in one
sitting, and only needs to be completed by the person or people responsible for overseeing ELPAC training and administration in the LEA. This course does not replace scoring training or calibration for items in the Speaking or Writing domains.
All videos included in the certification course are also included in the Trainer Resources and Test Examiner Training and Calibration courses as resources for local LEA trainings. However, you must view the videos in the certification course in order to receive
a certificate of completion. As the LEA coordinator, or designee, it is your responsibility to complete this certification course and ensure test examiners complete calibration.
There is a course for kindergarten through grade twelve LEAs and a course for grade six through twelve LEAs. The LEA coordinator completes the course that best aligns with their LEA.
The Trainer Resources course provides trainers access to online training materials needed to conduct training.
These resources include everything ELPAC trainers need to prepare test examiners for administrating and scoring the Initial ELPAC: training videos, trainer notes for each task type, training quizzes, and the Initial ELPAC Training binder sections. Trainers
need to decide if test examiners need training in both the Speaking and Writing domains or just Writing domain. All test examiners will have to calibrate for the grade level and grade spans and the domains they will be administering and scoring. Calibration
quizzes are located in the Test Examiner Training and Calibration course.
Initial ELPAC Test Examiner Training and Calibration course
The Test Examiner Training and Calibration course provides test examiners access to online training videos and quizzes for self-guided training and calibration.
Sections containing various training materials and calibration quizzes (Calibration Certification) are organized by grade levels and grade spans. Within each training and calibration section, test examiners will find training videos, training quizzes, and calibration
Test examiners must calibrate for the grade level or grade spans they will be administering and scoring. Calibration quizzes do not need to be completed in order. Once all calibration quizzes in the section are completed, a link to a “certification of completion”
will unlock. Test examiners will follow this link to have a certificate emailed to them. Test examiners can share these certificates with their ELPAC trainer, site coordinator, and/or LEA ELPAC coordinator as proof of calibration.
Test examiners may need to complete calibration in more than one grade level or grade span section, depending on who they will be testing. For example, test examiners administering the ELPAC to kindergarten through grade 6 will need to complete
the kindergarten–grade 5 AND the grades 6–8 speaking calibration certification sections.
Test examiners do not need to take the LEA Certification Course, however, the training videos included in the certification course are available for test examiners as an additional training resource.
