ASSETS is a 35-state consortium, building on the work of the WIDA Consortium, to create the next generation of English Language Proficiency tests. The Consortium's work is supported through a federal Enhanced Assessment Grant (EAG) with plans for full operationalization of the new assessment system in 2015-16.
Changes to ACCESS for ELLs
The ASSETS grant supports development of a technology-based assessment system for English Learners. The transition to a computerized version of ACCESS for ELLs, tentatively called ACCESS for ELLs 2.0, is scheduled for 2015-16.
See What's New in ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 for more information.
