Grades K-12: English Language Proficiency Assessment (WIDA)


The ESSA of 2015 requires that students identified as English Learners (EL) are annually assessed for English proficiency in the four domains of speaking, listening, reading, and writing on English Language Proficiency Assessment. The WIDA Consortium provides Nevada’s English Proficiency Examination. This language assessment does not replace the State English Language Arts Tests (SBAC, ACT or NAA) required by state law.
