What are the assessments my child will take and when will they take place?
ACCESS (Assessing Comprehension and Communication in English State-to-State for
English Language Learners).
The ACCESS tests your child on their abilities in the areas of listening, speaking, reading and writing. The ACCESS is given during the month of January/beginning of February.
MODEL (Measure of Developing English Language)
The MODEL tests your child on their abilities in the areas of listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The MODEL is given during May.
The ELL teachers use the scores from the ACCESS and the MODEL to determine if your student will continue in the ELL program the following year or when they will be released.
