My name is Gina Bartlett and this is my 6th year teaching ESOL. Prior to teaching ESOL, I taught Middle School Science for 5 years. I am married and we have 2 boys. My family and I enjoy traveling to the beach and mountains and spending time with family. Please email me at bartlettge@troup.org if you have any questions regarding your ESOL students. 


 

ACCESS Information

ACCESS for ELs 2.0

Purpose and Use of ACCESS for ELLs 2.0

  • Help students understand their current level of English language proficiency along the developmental continuum.
  • Serve as one of multiple measures used to determine those students prepared to exit English language support programs.
  • Provide teachers with information they can subsequently use to enhance instruction and learning in programs for their English language learners.
  • Provide districts with information that will help them evaluate the effectiveness of their ESL/bilingual programs.
  • Meet federal requirements, such as Annual Measureable Achievement Objectives 1 and 2, for the monitoring of ELLs' progress toward English language proficiency.

Features

As with ACCESS for ELLs, the tasks on the new summative assessment will attempt to replicate the kinds of communicative situations (and the language needed to be processed or produced within them) that might be encountered in different school contexts. Each assessment item and task will target at least one of the five WIDA ELD Standards:

  • Social and Instructional Language
  • Language of Language Arts
  • Language of Mathematics
  • Language of Science
  • Language of Social Studies

ACCESS for ELLs 2.0 will continue to assess each of the four language domains of Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing separately.
