WIDA Screener/Kinder W-APT
The WIDA Screener and the Kinder WIDA-ACCESS Placement Test (W-APT) are English language proficiency screeners given to incoming students who may be designated as English language learners (ELLs). They assist educators in identifying and supporting newly enrolled English language learners.
The WIDA screener is administered to students in grades 1-12 and can be administered online or on paper. The Kinder W-APT is only available as a paper test and is given to kindergarten and first semester first grade students.
