California English Language Development Test (CELDT)

Students in kindergarten through grade 12 whose home language is not English are required by law to take an English skills test. In California, the test is called the CELDT (California English Language Development Test).

This test helps schools 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.
