The ELP Assessment DVR Window will open, June 1 through June 15, 2023. The purpose of this window is to provide districts the opportunity to review and correct student participation and performance data related to the WIDA Kindergarten ACCESS, ACCESS for ELLs and Alternate ACCESS for ELLs assessments in Accountability Reporting. OELP has created updated guidance to assist districts in their review of student data and potential submission of Data Verification Requests (DVRs). Staff completing this review will require site and/or district-level access in the Accountability Reporting application.
Webinar providing an overview of administering the WIDA K Screener initial administration, early administration, best practices, potential conflicts, and additional administration.
Due to paper-only format of the K Screener assessment, a participating student demonstrating English language proficiency on the K Screener may generate an EL conflict in the Accountability Reporting application. In these cases, the LEA will need to upload the student’s K Screener scoring documentation through the Accountability Reporting application’s conflict resolution process in order to address the conflict.
We are excited to team with your district/site to provide integral training to your staff in working with Oklahoma’s English Learners.
