California English Language Development Test

Students in kindergarten through grade twelve whose home language is not English are required by law to take an English skills test. In California, the test is called the CELDT.

This test helps schools 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.

  • For more information about the CELDT, contact Mrs. White, English Language Development Coordinator.
  • The CELDT - CalEdFacts page provides a more detailed overview of the test.


Note: The English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) will be the successor to CELDT by 2018.
