  • ACCESS testing for English Learners

    Students enrolled in Nome Public Schools who have been identified as English Learners will participate in the annual administration of the ACCESS test beginning on February 5th. 

    The State of Alaska has provided some resources and information to the public and to parents of English Learners about this test. 

     * The Test Demo is a series of videos that explain how students will take the online test and interact with the test platform. 
     * The Sample Items provide students, parents, and educators with a better understanding of the ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 Online assessment that is based on the WIDA English Language Development (ELD) Standards. These are not items that will appear on the operational test, but they provide a close proximity to the items that students will see on the test.
