Each January the ESL students in the state of Colorado are assessed with the ACCESS test. This English test has 4 parts (speaking, listening, reading, and writing) and will help us determine how much English your child has learned in those areas over the last year. This assessment determines eligibility for ESL services as well as demonstrates growth of English from year to year.
Kindergarten ACCESS testing will begin next Tuesday, January 22-January 25 and the Grades 1-5 ACCESS test will begin January 28-February 8th. Attendance is important so that students don’t have to make up tests. Like all state tests, it is imperative that students get a good night sleep the night before the test and eat a healthy breakfast on the morning of the test.
