For All Schools
Extended ACCESS for ELLs Schedule
In recognition of the ongoing impact of COVID-19 on schools and families, the Commissioner has extended the ACCESS for ELLs testing window through March 4, 2022, with return of test materials by March 8. This will delay the reporting of electronic ACCESS results by a total of six days until May 19. Print results will be available as previously announced on May 24. This extension will ensure that as many English learners as possible take these important English proficiency tests. Information about ACCESS testing activities and the dates on which they will occur will be available shortly on the Massachusetts WIDA State Page and in the January 10 edition of the EL Assessment Update newsletter.
