  • Assessment Materials & Training

    How do I gain access to view and/or download W-APT screener materials?

    Your W-APT username and password are required (this is a district-wide login, not your personal ACCESS training login). If you don't know your district's W-APT username and password, please contact your district facilitator.

    How do I set up my account for the ACCESS for ELLs Test Administrator Training Course?

    Contact your state facilitator for help setting up your account: Chris Williams at (502) 564-4394 x4106 or chris.williams@education.ky.gov

    Am I required to take the test administrator training quizzes to become approved to administer the ACCESS test?
