RE: Materials Ordering Window
The ACCESS for ELLs and Alternate ACCESS for ELLs Materials Ordering Window for your state will take place Monday, September 28, 2020 through Thursday, November 5, 2020. If you are administering the ACCESS or Alternate ACCESS test, you must place a materials order regardless of testing mode (online or paper). Please
be advised that if you do not order tests for your school or district during this timeframe, you WILL NOT receive any materials in the initial materials shipment.
Pre-ID labels are ordered separately through the district or state, but will be included in the initial materials shipment regardless of materials ordered.
All ACCESS for ELLs test materials will be ordered from DRC using WIDA AMS. Test Coordinators will need to follow the test materials ordering procedures outlined in the WIDA Assessment Management (WIDA AMS) User Guide
located in WIDA AMS under All Applications > General Information > Documents.
How to Order Materials:
- Log into WIDA AMS.
- Click Materials > Materials Ordering.
- Choose the Administration MO ACCESS for ELLs - 2020 - 2021.
- Click Show Materials.
WIDA AMS requires users to enter enrollments for each school rather than at the district level. Likewise, District/School labels are generated at the school level.
Districts or school users will enter student counts at each grade level as applicable. You only need to enter counts at grades for which you have students testing. An overage will be provided based upon the materials that are ordered during the ordering window. Please do not increase your numbers for the sake of having extras.
All students to be tested must be included in the student counts, even if they are only testing online and do not need paper materials. As shown below, counts for online testers should be entered into the Online Order Grid. Counts for paper testers should be entered into the Paper Order Grid. There are also grids for Kindergarten, Alternate ACCESS for ELLs, and customized materials (large print and Braille).
