English Language Proficiency Assessment for the 21st Century

Washington has joined a group of 11 states to develop an assessment system to address the needs of Washington's 110,000 English language learners. The English Language Proficiency Assessment for the 21st Century (ELPA21) is a system based on the new English Language Proficiency Standards our state recently adopted. The new tests will measure the language proficiency of ELLs as they progress through their K-12 education and achieve college and career readiness.

ELPA21 is being developed through federal grants totaling $9,080,044. It will be administered to students online, and will assess four language domains: Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking.
