Assessments » ACCESS



The ACCESS for ELLs and Alternate ACCESS for ELLs are the assessments developed by the WIDA consortium and administered to English learners to measure progress toward meeting Minnesota’s standards for English language development. Most English learners are required to take the ACCESS for ELLs, but English learners who receive special education services and meet the participation guidelines may take the Alternate ACCESS for ELLs.
