IX.Next Steps ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 Suite of Assessments The following assessments are used to satisfy state and federal requirements for the annual assessment of the English language proficiency of English language learners (ELLs): ACCESS for ELLs 2.0, an online and paper-based assessment for Grades 112 Kindergarten ACCESS for ELLs, a paper-based

assessment for Kindergarten Alternate ACCESS for ELLs, a paper-based assessment for ELLs in Grades 112 who have significant cognitive disabilities Who takes ACCESS? All NEP and LEP students enrolled at your school (K-12). Families may not opt out of ACCESS testing (federally required test- state opt out law does not

apply) Students who are present during the window must be tested (even if they missed your schoolspecific test date). When is ACCESS? January 14- February 15, 2019 Cut off to test late-enrolling students is February XXX State-Specific Directions:

Coming Soon ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 Domains Preparing for testing: Scheduling Consider: Who are your TAs? When will they be trained?

Who will have access to materials (should be 1-2 people)? Who will distribute materials? How will testing impact specials/field trips, etc? What locations will you use for group testing vs. small group/ individual testing? Who is your tech person? How will you communicate with them? Paper Scheduling

Test order (Recommended): Session 1: Listening/Reading Session 2: Writing Session 3: Speaking (Individual) Limit group size to 22 students (recommended) May NOT combine grade clusters/tiers in testing sessions. Preparing for testing:

Communication Once you have built your schedule, how will you communicate with families? Make-up testing is the worst- how can you maximize attendance? Think about noise levels during testingespecially during speaking testing. Dont schedule a drumming demo on the same days as testing. Preparing for testing: Set-up

Paper: Number two pencils, CD player and speakers, desks set up so that students cant see other test booklets Online: Computers, headphones/headsets (for speaking and listening) Decide: What will you do if students finish early? Will students be allowed to have water bottles? Create a standardized, secure testing environment Kindergarten ACCESS for

ELLs Individually administered Completely adaptive Includes manipulatives All components are scored by the Test Administrator (TA) during test administration Takes around 45 minutes
