At Oak Valley, our TK-8th grade English Learners take the Summative ELPAC each year in February. This is an annual assessment to measure an EL student's progress and to identify the student's ELP level.

TK and Kindergarten newly enrolled students are identified through our Home Language Survey. The Initial English Language Proficiency Assessments for California (ELPAC) is the required state test for English language proficiency (ELP) that is given to newly enrolled students whose primary language is a language other than English. 

Also, our 3rd-8th grade students take the SBAC in English Language Arts and Mathematics.

Our 5th and 8th grade students also take the CAST Science Test.

Students in 5th and 7th grade, participate in PFT-Physical Fitness Testing.
