Presented at: MwALT Conference 2018

This workshop will focus on assessing and scoring students’ academic written language. The workshop will begin with an overview of the ACCESS 2.0 test construct and task design. Then, participants will review and analyze student responses at a variety of grade and performance levels, and discuss approaches to developing a rubric and scoring scale descriptors that reflect differences in performance levels. Finally, participants will review the WIDA ACCESS 2.0 Writing Scoring Scale and practice applying it to student language.
