CELDT: California English Language Development Test

• Federal and state laws require that school districts must give a state test to students whose primary home language is not English. In California, this test is called the California English Language Development Test (CELDT).  


• The purpose of the CELDT is to

o Identify English learners in kindergarten through grade twelve

o Measure their skill level in English

o Check their progress in learning English each year  

 

•   All students in kindergarten through grade twelve, whose primary language is not English, must take the CELDT. These students must take the test within 30 calendar days after they start at a California public school for the first time. The CELDT also must be given once each year to English learners until they have learned the skills in English needed to complete their schoolwork.
