All district and school staff involved in administering ACCESS for ELLs should retrain once every two years. Staff involved in Scoring Speaking must recertify and pass all quizzes annually. Speaking scoring training is identical for both ELP screeners and ACCESS for ELLs, and only needs to be completed once annually to certify the administrator for all assessments.
WIDA Training Modules
All training required to administer ACCESS for ELLs is available through the WIDA website. After logging into the WIDA website, Training Materials can be found under My Account & Secure Portal.
DACs assign testing roles through the WIDA AMS. When you are assigned a testing role, the WIDA AMS will email you login instructions. Find your role on the WIDA website and complete the checklist for that role.
