ACCESS for ELLs® - Pre-ID label information

The pre-ID labels for the ACCESS for ELLs® language proficiency test will be handled differently than last year.

ISBE Student Assessment has made changes to help TBE/TPI coordinators and district staff in charge of Limited English Proficient (LEP) services.

ISBE will pull all the names and student demographic information for LEP students in grades Kindergarten through 12 from the Student Information System (SIS). Every student identified as LEP will receive a pre-ID label for ACCESS.

Districts are encouraged to make sure that LEP students have their State ID numbers and current demographic information entered into SIS before November 22, 2006. ISBE vendor MetriTech will use this information to produce the pre-ID labels which will be sent to districts around January 9, 2007.

If you have any questions, email Becky McCabe at rmccabe@isbe.net or call MetriTech at 1-800-747-4828.
