WIDA Online Training Materials


District Assessment Coordinators have access to W-APT training materials that are available on the secure section of the WIDA website. The website includes W-APT recorded webinar trainings, a Training Toolkit with WIDA-prepared PowerPoints available for download, Test Administration Manuals for Kindergarten and grades 1-12, and a booklet with scored student writing samples. WIDA's website provides districts with all of the materials needed to become fully trained on administration of the W-APT.


WIDA provides online ACCESS for ELLs training courses designed to support district training for test administrators. The three training courses consist of modules: 1) Group Test Administration, 2) Speaking Test Administration, and 3) Kindergarten Test Administration.  There is one module for Alternate ACCESS for ELLs administration. If test administrators do not have a login to access these modules, they can contact their DAC for information on creating their own account.
