CELDT

Students in kindergarten through grade twelve whose home language is not English are required by law to be assessed in English language proficiency (ELP). In California, the ELP assessment is the CELDT.

The CELDT allows schools to identify students who need to improve their skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing in English. Schools also give the test each year to students who are still learning English.

The CELDT-CalEdFacts page provides a more detailed overview of the test.

For answers to “What is the purpose of the CELDT?” and “Who must take the CELDT?” and other frequently asked questions, please visit the CELDT FAQ Web page.
