Access for Ell’s - ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 is a secure large-scale English language proficiency assessment administered to Kindergarten through 12th grade students who have been identified as English language learners (ELLs) and is given annually.  The test helps students and families understand students’ current level of English language proficiency along the developmental continuum, generates information that assists in determining whether ELLs have attained the language proficiency needed to participate meaningfully in content area classrooms without program support, and provides teachers with information they can subsequently use to enhance instruction and learning in programs for their English language learners.

The Access for Ell test window is January 29-March 23, 2018.  I will administer the test March 23-25, 2018.
