ACCESS for ELLs | Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction

The ACCESS test is a standardized test that all of our Multilingual learners take in January or February of each year. It is a comprehensive test taken over several days that measures proficiency in the 4 domains of language development: Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing. Once a student has achieved an overall score of 4.8, they are considered English proficient and are exited from MLL services in school. Exited students are monitored for two years to ensure they are successful without English supports. 

Parents/guardians, teachers and students are provided with a detailed score report several months after the test is taken. The report gives information to about a student's proficiency level, and it also gives guidance for what academic tasks the student can reasonably do at that particular stage in their language development. Here is a sample report:
