ACCESS for ELLs Test - English Language Proficiency Assessment
ACCESS for ELLs is the state-mandated test
of English language proficiency administered to ESOL students annually. The
test results are used to demonstrate the progress MCPS and Maryland State ESOL
students are making in speaking, listening, reading and writing. We will be
administering the assessment beginning January 8th.
All students currently enrolled in the ESOL program will
be taking the assessment. Also, any student who was identified for ESOL service
but did not participate in ESOL classes will be assessed. The test results will
be shared with the parents when they are available in spring.
