    TESTING

    The Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) requires that all students in kindergarten through 12th grade who have been identified as English Learners take the state’s English language proficiency test each year. The testing window usually begins in January. 

    This test is known as ACCESS for ELLs, which stands for "Assessing Comprehension and Communication in English State-to-State for English Language Learners."

    The ACCESS test measures student proficiency in the four domains of English language development: speaking, listening, reading and writing.

    Students are required to take the ACCESS test annually, regardless of level of service, until they meet the Illinois state-mandated criteria of an overall composite score of 4.8.

    The window for District 86 for 2022 school year was January 24- February 4, 2022. 

    If you have any questions about ACCESS testing or the ELL Program at District 86, please reach out to Treacy O'Keefe.
