ISBE DELL Special Newsletter 2014.258 - The World Class Instructional Design and Assessment (WIDA) Consortium Seeks Districts to Volunteer For Field Test
This special edition DELL newsletter will focus on assessment.
The World Class Instructional Design and Assessment (WIDA) consortium is currently seeking school districts to volunteer for immediate participation in a field test of the next generation of ACCESS (2.0). They especially need grades 1-3 for the reading domain, grades 4-12 in writing, and 1-12 in speaking are also needed. A field test session covers one domain and takes a maximum of one hour.
- WIDA will provide free headsets for districts that need them.
- Some WIDA staff are available to assist with the administration of a large number of students (grades 1-3 reading).
- WIDA will provide participating districts with a free copy of their ELLs Growth Report (a $200 value, requires that students have two consecutive years of ACCESS scores).
