ACCESS for ELLs Colorado 

Connect with WIDA's website for upcoming ACCESS 2.0 Webinars and transition information. 

 


WIDA Online Training Materials

W-APT:

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.

ACCESS for ELLs:

WIDA provides online ACCESS for ELLs training courses designed to support district training for test administrators. Training courses consist of checklists and modules for Online for ACCESS for ELLs 2.0, Paper ACCESS for ELLs 2.0, Kindergarten ACCESS, and 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.

WIDA ACCESS for ELLs Webinar Series

Beginning in late September, WIDA and DRC will offer a series of free supplemental webinars covering a range of topics relevant to District Test Coordinators, Technology Coordinators, and Test Administrators.  These webinars will provide information on specific pre-test and during-test activities and will include ample time for questions and discussions.  Each webinar will be task- or topic- specific and relevant to a particular role. The webinars are designed to provide supplemental information in addition to (not a replacement for) Colorado’s ACCESS for ELLs training sessions coming up in October. Attendees can access the webinars via the Join Now hotlinks embedded in the updated webinar calendar (see below) or via http://go.wisc.edu/2hpzqk.  WIDA does not recommend attempting to register for any webinar ahead of time.  Instead, it is recommended that participants join the webinar 10-15 minutes prior to the start time to secure a seat in the WebEx meeting.
