The California English Language Development Test (CELDT) is given as an initial assessment to newly enrolled students whose primary language is not English and as an annual assessment to English Learners enrolled in transitional kindergarten through grade twelve in California public schools.


The CELDT has three purposes:

1. To identify students who are limited English proficient.

2. To determine the level of English language proficiency of students who are limited English proficient.

3. To assess the progress of limited English proficient students in acquiring the skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing in English. 

Please see the California Department of Education CELDT Web page to learn more about the CELDT program.
