ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 Summative Assessment

In 2015-16, the WIDA Consortium will begin administration of the new, technology-based annual summative assessment, ACCESS for ELLs 2.0. The computerized assessment will replace the current paper-based version of ACCESS for ELLs for Grades 1-12, although the paper-based assessment will continue to be available as an accommodation and for districts who do not yet have the technology to administer the assessment online.

More detailed information about the new assessment is available on the ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 section of the WIDA website.  The Implementation section of this website includes FAQs, information about technology requirements, and preparation resources to assist educators.
