  23. The WIDA ELP Standards Standard 1—SI English language learners communicate in English for social and instructional purposes in the school setting. Standard 2— LA English language learners communicate information, ideas and concepts necessary for academic success in the content area of Language Arts. Standard 3—MA English language learners communicate information, ideas and concepts necessary for academic success in the content area of Math. Standard 4—SC English language learners communicate information, ideas and concepts necessary for academic success in the content area of Science. Standard 5— SS English language learners communicate information, ideas and concepts necessary for academic success in the content area of Social Studies. WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech

  28. Individual Model Performance Indicators (PIs) as Basis of Test Items Level 2: Beginning Match needed resources or supplies with type of activities from pictures and oral statements (e.g., calculators & math books) Grades 6-8 Standard 1: Social and Instructional Language Listening Example topic: Resources & Supplies WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech

  31. Tier Placement Follow Criteria for Tier Placement (available in Informational Handbook and at www.wida.us) Use previous test scores Use teacher judgment Keep in mind 70-80% will be Tier B (Aligns with Proficiency Levels 2-4) When in doubt, place the student in the higher tier WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech

  32. ACCESS Administration Times and Weights Listening (15%): 20-25 minutes, machine scored Reading (35%): 35-40 minutes, machine scored Writing (35%): Up to 1 hour, rater scored Speaking (15%): Up to 15 minutes, administrator scored WIDA Consortium / CAL / Metritech
