  • ELL Department Notices – English Language Proficiency Assessment


    Dear Parent/Guardian of ELL Students,

    The purpose of this letter is to inform you that your student will be taking the ACCESS for ELLs 2.0

    assessment between January 5, 2017 and February 8, 2017. This test measures your student’s progress in

    listening, speaking, reading, and writing English language skills. Later this spring, your student will receive

    an Individual Student Report that provides information about how well he or she is progressing in the

    English language.

    Please review the following policies with your child before testing:

    Electronic Devices—If your student is found with ANY electronic devices, including, but not

    limited to, cell phones and smart phones, at any time during testing OR during breaks, his or her

    test section will be invalidated, which means it will not be scored. The best practice is for students

    to leave electronic devices at home or in their lockers on the day of testing.

    Leaving School—If your student leaves campus before completing a test section (for an

    appointment, illness, etc.), he or she WILL NOT be allowed to complete that test section. If your

    student does not feel well on the day of testing, it may be best for him or her to wait and be tested

    on the day designated for this purpose.
