Each year, students in English learner programs take the ACCESS for ELLs assessment to measure their English knowledge and skills. The test measures academic English language proficiency for students learning English in our school and throughout our state.
Teachers in our schools use this information to help them make decisions about instruction for your child. Teachers also use these test scores to monitor the progress your child makes toward English proficiency.
The testing window will be open January 30th - March 24th.
Your child does not need to study for this test. The test is an opportunity for students to demonstrate what they understand and can communicate in English.
Please contact the Multilingual office at 360-855-3772 if you have questions about the ACCESS for ELLs test.
