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
  • Writing Benchmarks

    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.
