WIDA Testing

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Please read the following information regarding WIDA testing this school year. We thank you for your cooperation during this time. 

  • The state of Michigan requires all English Language Learners (ELLs) to take the WIDA Assessment, an academic English language proficiency test, every year.
  • There are four parts to the test:  Listening, Reading, Writing, and Speaking.
  • Test information and results help teachers plan how best to teach your child and provide proper services.
  • Based on this WIDA data, your child’s intervention support is determined.
  • The test will be administered in person, and all safety measures to prevent covid-19 will be in place.
  • You will receive a reminder phone call before your child’s scheduled assessment day.
  • Drop off your child at the main office door. 
  • Students must wear masks.
  • The test may take 4 hours from 8:45 until 12:45. 
  • Please be on time.
  • Students will be marked school-related on the day of their test. 
  • Students will be provided with a snack. 
  • Students will call for a ride when they have finished testing.
  • Please pick up your child promptly.
