ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 is a state and federally mandated assessment for students learning the English language in grades K-12. This assessment tracks students over multiple years to measure their progress in acquiring English proficiency.

Educators use ACCESS results, along with other WIDA resources, to make decisions about students' English academic language and to facilitate their language development.

Students' scores reflect proficiency levels ranging from Level 1 (Entering) to Level 6 (Reaching).
