All students whose primary language is not English, based on a home
language survey, and who have not previously taken the CELDT, must be
given an IA within 30 days from the date of first enrollment.
Answer documents for these students must be sent in for scoring on a
monthly basis.
 Annual Assessment (AA)
Students who have previously taken the CELDT and were identified as
English learners (ELs) must be tested annually during the AA Window (July
1 to October 31) until they are reclassified as fluent English proficient
(RFEP) based on the guidelines for reclassification established by the State
Board of Education (Education Code Section 313[d]).

Alternate Assessment
Pg 4
DTSCM
IEP teams may determine that a student is unable
to participate in one or more domains of the
CELDT, even with variations, accommodations
and/or modifications, due to short or long-term
disability. The student may be tested with an
alternate assessment per the student’s IEP. Make
sure to return a CELDT scannable Answer Book for
the students, ensuring that the Alternate
Assessment bubble (#15) is marked for each
appropriate domain.
Students will receive the Lowest Obtainable Scale
Score
Braille is not an alternate assessment.

Practice holding the test materials. Handling the Answer Book, Test
Book and Examiner’s Manual with ease takes practice.
Mark the pages you will be reading with paperclips or another method
in advance.
Read the Examiner’s Manual for instructions to how to “model correct
response” for practice items and prepare how to correctly model
practice item answers.
Refer to Table 4 Test Administration Procedures in the Examiner’s
Manual to confirm which directions and questions can be repeated.
You can find examples of these tables on pages 2-36 through 2-39.
Before testing starts, check to make sure that students’ desks are
cleared of all materials not needed for testing.
Roles and Responsibilities – Group Administration
 Make sure testing room is set up according to the guidelines in the Examiner’s
Manual with space or barriers between students.
 During testing, speak clearly and slowly so students can hear you. Use a
neutral voice throughout testing. Students may interpret variations in tone as
a clue hat the emphasized word or phrase could be the correct answer to a
question.
 Move around the room to monitor that students are marking their responses
in the correct location of the Answer Books.
 Any group of 20 or more requires the assistance of a proctor during test
administration. Proctors need to sign a Test Security Affidavit.
 When combining classrooms for group administrations, carefully check that
students are given the correct Answer Book. Pay special attention to students
who have IEP’s and special accommodations during group administrations
Local Scoring
Pg 6 DTSCM
http://www.celdt.org/resources/scoring_tool/
The primary purpose of local scoring is to place Initial
Assessment students into the appropriate English
learner program, if any, based on the preliminary score.
Instructions for completing local scoring are provided
in Section 10, Preliminary Local Scoring, of each
Examiner’s Manual.
Whether your district uses the paper Student Score
Sheet, the electronic Local Scoring Tool, the List of
Items and Scoring Keys tables or another method,
these documents are for your schools use only and
should not be returned in the scorable test material
shipments.
