EL Resources for Families

ELPAC and CAASPP Resources

To help empower parents and families to become partners in their children’s academic success, the California Department of Education and the Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium have created the “Starting Smarter,” family websites. Learn more about the California Assessment of Student Performance and Progress (CAASPP) and the English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC).Through these websites, families can become involved in their child’s progress, learn more about the performance areas in each subject and grade, see sample test questions, prepare for parent-teacher conferences with a useful downloadable guide, and access resources to support learning at home.
