California English Language Development Test (CELDT)Top of Page
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.
SDUHSD administers the LAS Links Forms A&B K–12 Assessments to help educators accurately assess the academic and social language skills of English language learners. The assessments provide detailed information on students' reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills.
The LAS Links assessment is administered twice a year, once in the fall and again in the spring. Assessment results are utilized as an additional indicator of student language proficiency to measure growth for English Learners as well as identify interventions and supports as needed.
