Access (WIDA) Testing

Testing Dates:

January 22 - March 8

Overview of ACCESS for ELLs and WIDA Alternate ACCESS

ACCESS Testing is an English mastery test that helps to determine educational supports for non-English-speaking students. 

ACCESS for ELLs is a statewide English language proficiency assessment to limited English proficient students in grades K through 12 in order to comply with the requirements of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, 20 USC 6301 et seq. (2002).

ACCESS Testing for ELLs will be held at Carolina High School& Academy. Testing will begin at 9:00 a.m. each day. 

All qualified ELL students are required to take the ACCESS Test, and will be contacted to let them know their testing date.

Alternate ACCESS is an assessment of English language proficiency for students in grades kindergarten through 12 who are classified as multilingual learners (MLs) and have significant cognitive disabilities that prevent their meaningful participation in the ACCESS for ELLs® assessment.
