  • Assessment Materials & Training

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

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

    You will need:

    • Your name
    • Your email address
    • Your state's Account Creator login information

    Contact robin.holbrook@wyo.gov or 307-777-5217 for help setting up your account.

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

    Yes. Log In to take the test administrator training quizzes. You must receive a passing score of 80% on all applicable quizzes.

    Do I need to retake the training quizzes if I passed them in a previous year?

    Do I need to show proof of my passing quiz grades (80%) from previous years?
