This document provides on overview of Access for ELLs ®
ACCESS for ELLs ® stands for Assessing Comprehension and Communication in English State-to-State for English Language Learners. This large-scale test addresses the academic English language proficiency (ELP) standards at the core of the WIDA Consortium's approach to instructing and evaluating the progress of English language learners.
The DoIT Help Desk does not support this program, but additional information can be found through WIDA (World-class Instructional Design and Assessment), a consortium of states dedicated to the design and implementation of high standards and equitable educational opportunities for English language learners. WIDA also facilitates the WIDA ACCESS Placement Test, or W-APT &trade, which is separate from the ACCESS for ELLs test.
