English Language Development Performance Expectations
Assessment of Pupil Progress

English Language Proficiency Assessment for California (ELPAC) is the state assessment that is used to identify possible ELs, monitor the progress of English proficiency, and serve as a tool for reclassification. The goal is to increase one ELPAC proficiency level, each year. These data coupled with monitoring the progress of ELD is critical in the design of programs, purchases of materials, targeting instruction and professional development opportunities. The ELD progress of pupils is monitored using both ELPAC and assessments within the supplemental curriculum Benchmark (K-6), Inside (7-8) or EDGE (9-12). Teachers will administer the pretest to determine pupil placement.  In addition, teachers will administer a minimum of two ELD curriculum-embedded assessments during the course of the year (one per semester). CUSD has also developed benchmark assessments in ELA and mathematics which allows teachers to monitor the mastery of specific grade level content standards. Both forms of assessment are used to monitor the progress of English Learners. Pupil data is housed within Illuminate which allows teachers to generate individual and class data. Individual data is analyzed to determine and plan for the individual needs of pupils. ELPAC data is also used to identify pupils for program placement, reclassification, and pupil interventions.
