California English Language Development Test (CELDT)

Students in kindergarten through grade twelve whose home language is not English are required by law to take an English skills test. In California, the test is called the CELDT.

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.

  • For more information about the CELDT, contact your local school district.
  • The CELDT - CalEdFacts page provides a more detailed overview of the test.
  • The links and information below were developed for educators and others who are directly involved with the CELDT.
