National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)


The Summative ELPAC measures how well English learners are progressing toward English language proficiency.


The Summative ELPAC is administered only to students who have previously been identified as an English learner based upon the results of the Initial ELPAC. A domain exemption may be used if an English learner has a disability that precludes assessment of the student in one or more domains of the English language proficiency assessment such that there are no appropriate accommodations for the affected domain(s). This use of a domain exemption(s) must be identified in the student’s individualized educational program (IEP) or Section 504 plan. For a student to be assigned an Overall score, the student will need to be assessed with the ELPAC in at least one domain for both the Oral and Written Language composites.
