CAASPP and ELPAC Special Request For Paper Exams

CAASPP and ELPAC Special Request for Paper Exams

Dear LEA CAASPP or LEA ELPAC Coordinator:

The tests comprising the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP), the Initial English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC), and the Summative ELPAC, are to be administered online, as computer-based assessments. California’s local educational agencies (LEAs) have made computer-based testing available to all students, as required in the California Code of Regulations, Title 5 (5 CCR), Section 853(b) for CAASPP; and 5 CCR, sections 11518.5(d) and 11518.15(b) for the Initial and Summative ELPAC. However, in some situations, students may face barriers when taking a computer-based assessment.

If any student in the LEA faces such barriers to accessing computer-based assessments, such as a student whose individualized education program (IEP) or Section 504 plan requires the student be tested using a braille, large-print, or general paper–pencil assessment, please complete this online form. The California Department of Education (CDE) and the ETS CAASPP and ELPAC teams will review and respond to each request. For any questions about requesting paper–pencil testing materials, please contact the California Technical Assistance Center (CalTAC), by phone at 800-955-2954 or by email at caltac@ets.org.
