Access 2.0 annual language assessment
The purpose of the Access 2.0 assessment
A language assessement for students who have languages other that English where their English is not at the fluent level as determined through a proficiency test, is required by the Federal and State governments. The ACCESS 2.0 assessments measure students' academic English language in four language domains: Listening, Speaking, Reading, Writing.
The content of the assessments aligns with the five WIDA English Language Development (ELD) Standards:
- Social & Instructional Language
- Language of Language Arts
- Language of Mathematics
- Language of Science
- Language of Social Studies
Students in an English Language Development class will take two writing benchmarks a year to determine specific growth within their class from fall to spring. The writing benchmarks are scored using the WIDA writing rubric.
