5 Intro to W-APT – WIDA ACCESS Placement Test 5 Language and Content Language proficiency involves the language associated with the content areas. Content knowledge reflects the declarative (what) and procedural knowledge (how) associated with the content. WIDA Consortium / CAL / MetriTech

6 Intro to W-APT – WIDA ACCESS Placement Test 6 Five ELP Standards Assessed by ACCESS for ELLs ® Standard 1: ELLs communicate for SOCIAL AND INSTRUCTIONAL purposes within the school setting. Standard 2: ELLs communicate information, ideas, and concepts necessary for academic success in the content area of LANGUAGE ARTS. Standard 3: ELLs communicate information, ideas, and concepts necessary for academic success in the content area of MATHEMATICS. Standard 4: ELLs communicate information, ideas, and concepts necessary for academic success in the content area of SCIENCE. Standard 5: ELLs communicate information, ideas, and concepts necessary for academic success in the content area of SOCIAL STUDIES. WIDA Consortium / CAL / MetriTech

57 Intro to W-APT – WIDA ACCESS Placement Test 57 WIDA Consortium / CAL / MetriTech Programmatic Implications of W-APT Screener

58 Intro to W-APT – WIDA ACCESS Placement Test 58 WIDA Consortium / CAL / MetriTech Interpreting W-APT Screener Using W-APT criterion to determine eligibility for placement in ESL services… Be sure to follow the established procedures in your district and state for interpreting the score for these purposes. (Identification and exit criteria differs from state-to-state across the WIDA Consortium.) WIDA does not prescribe criteria for matching particular ESL services to particular scores on the test. This is a matter of interpretation of state or local policy guidelines.

59 Intro to W-APT – WIDA ACCESS Placement Test 59 High-level Scores Programmatic Implications Some things to consider: Is it appropriate to exit the student from ESL services? Does this student have the language skills necessary to access the content in the mainstream classroom without additional language support services? What additional evidence is needed to make a determination? Is the students English proficiency weak in a particular language domain (e.g., Writing)? Is the students English proficiency weak in a particular standard area (e.g., the language of Social Studies)? If so, consider additional content language support. Overall Composite Levels 5–6 may indicate a need for Monitoring or Targeted Support. WIDA Consortium / CAL / MetriTech

60 Intro to W-APT – WIDA ACCESS Placement Test 60 Some things to consider: A balanced, long-term approach that focuses on grade- level academic standards and English proficiency standards and utilizes strategies that increase comprehension and communication in English (e.g., sheltered instruction) Enhancement of both oral language and literacy development Mid-level Scores Programmatic Implications Mid-level Scores Programmatic Implications Overall Composite Levels 3–4 may indicate a need for 1–3 more years of ELL support services. WIDA Consortium / CAL / MetriTech

61 Intro to W-APT – WIDA ACCESS Placement Test 61 Some things to consider : Provide brief targeted English - social and instructional Enroll ELLs in newcomer programs (if available) Use content-based strategies (e.g., sheltered instruction) Scaffold within programs and school Graphic support Peer support Supplemental and modified materials Beginner-level Scores Programmatic Implications Beginner-level Scores Programmatic Implications Overall Composite Levels 1–2 may need 5–6 more years of ELL support services.
