4th GRADE ACCESS Test: February 1 - February 4, 2021
What is the ACCESS Test?
The ACCESS Test is an English language proficiency computer-based test that measures students' academic English language skills. It is important that students do their best to use all of the skills they learn in the ELD classroom on each part of the test. The best way to prepare your child for the test is to make sure your child gets plenty of sleep and eats breakfast the day of the test.
What safety and health measures are in place?
As a school, we are taking every precaution to keep your child safe and healthy during the test. All students and staff will be required to have symptoms and temperatures checked, wear a mask, and use hand sanitizer before entering the school. Testing groups are limited to eight students to allow for adequate social distancing and only one elementary and one secondary grade level will be in the building on any day to minimize contact with others. Plexiglass barriers will also be used to separate students while testing.
