The English Language Proficiency Assessment for the 21st Century (ELPA21) is the assessment used in Washington State to measure English proficiency. It is a test administered annually to students who qualify for English language development (ELD) services. This assessment measures a student's language proficiency against the English Language Proficiency Standards. The ELPA21 is an online assessment that measures English proficiency in the four domains of listening, reading, writing, and speaking. More information can be found here: English, Spanish
ELL students will take the practice test at the end of February. They will take the actual test in the first few weeks of March.
