The English Language Proficiency Assessment for the 21st Century (ELPA21) is a group of states committed to supporting educators, member states, and the public as they adopt and implement the English Language Proficiency (ELP) Standards and college- and career-ready standards. ELPA21’s assessment system will provide information to inform instruction so that all English language learners (ELLs) leave high school prepared for college and career success.
