75 ACCESS for ELLs Training 75 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech Interpreting ACCESS for ELLs® Results Be familiar with the ELP Performance Definitions Be familiar with the ELP Performance Definitions Target certain reports to specific stakeholders Consider summarizing or consolidating the suggestions for using the information from each score report according to target audience. Look at different configurations of data in the reports for individual and group placement or to develop a plan for organizing services for English Language Learners for the coming school year.

76 ACCESS for ELLs Training 76 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech Types of Scores Raw Scores---by ELP Standard Scale Scores Vertically scaled K-12 (100-600) Scale scores for each language domain are separate English Language Proficiency Level (1.0-6.0)

80 ACCESS for ELLs Training 80 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech What does the parent report tell us? Information about the students English language proficiency in relation to the WIDA ELP StandardsNOT information on the students academic achievement Indicates the extent to which a student has acquired listening, speaking, reading and writingreflective of a test given annually.

81 ACCESS for ELLs Training 81 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech Parent/Guardian Translations Provided in English and 19 additional languages - visit www.wida.us www.wida.us A letter to accompany the report in parents primary language is suggested

83 ACCESS for ELLs Training 83 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech How do we use this information? Standards-based results help inform curriculum, instruction and assessment of ELLs. The Overall Score summarizes students global language proficiency. Domain subscale scores allow for examination of strengths and weakness by domain.

84 ACCESS for ELLs Training 84 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech Raw scores by standards allow for examination of strengths and weakness by standards Individual report components offer a starting point for differentiating instruction and assessment. Rubrics in Interpretative GuideWriting and Speakingcriteria with rubrics scaffold across the levels of language proficiency and may be used in assessing classroom tasks and projects throughout the year.

85 ACCESS for ELLs Training 85 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech Student Roster Report Scale Score and ELP Level by Domain Scale Score and ELP Level by Composite: Oral Language, Literacy, Comprehension and Overall Cluster Tier

86 ACCESS for ELLs Training 86 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech Using this information? Examine scores from each language domain within a grade level cluster to detect patterns. (To what extent are there differences in student performance between the language domains, and are these differences attributed to second language development or delivery of instructional services?)

87 ACCESS for ELLs Training 87 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech Continued: Inform school and district improvement plans for ELLs. A starting point for grouping students for support services according to their Overall Score or by their profiles according to language domains.

88 ACCESS for ELLs Training 88 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech Highest & Lowest Scores Total Tested Number of Students Tested who scored at each ELP level by Domain and Composite % of Total Students Tested who scored at each ELP level by Domain and Composite

89 ACCESS for ELLs Training 89 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech How to use this information Frequency reports for two consecutive years provide cross- sectional data (unless the set of students from one year to the next is identical, which is highly unlikely.) If data in this report are used to make cross-sectional comparisons, this is applicable across grade level clusters, as ACCESS for ELLs is a vertically scored test, k-12. In communicating results of this report, use both the numbers and their corresponding percents. If numbers are low, the percent may appear distorted if shown in isolation.

90 ACCESS for ELLs Training 90 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech Highest & Lowest Scores Total Tested Number of Students Tested who scored at each ELP level by Domain and Composite % of Total Students Tested who scored at each ELP level by Domain and Composite

91 ACCESS for ELLs Training 91 WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech How do we use this information? This report may serve as a districts estimate of the number and/or percent of students who have met criterion for Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives (AMAOs). Data can be shared with local boards of education or community groups. Information will be useful in planning, designing, or restructuring program services.
