ACCESS ?

    Explanation of Display

    This graph displays ACCESS performance levels, for students in this district, over a 3-year period. To customize the data view click the Select Options button. Use the drop down menus to choose the length of time and type of data you wish to view. Once the selections have been made, click the green Apply button. The View Details check box adds the data in chart format, for the default screen only. Mousing over any item in the color coded key beneath the graph, will change the display to only that single performance level.

    When a subgroup has fewer than 10 students, the comparison data is not shown. This is done to protect student privacy.

    Context

    School districts must annually assess the English language proficiency, including listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills, of ALL children of limited English-speaking ability in kindergarten and any of grades 1 through 12,  using the English language proficiency assessment prescribed by the State Superintendent of Education.

    ACCESS for ELLs is a standards-based English language proficiency test designed to measure English language learners' social and academic proficiency in English. It assesses social and instructional English, as well as language associated with language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. The secure full-scale ACCESS for ELLs assessment will be distributed at no cost to public schools.
