WIDA MODEL™ Score Calculator

adult with hands on keyboard and mouse

A tool to determine your students' proficiency levels

The WIDA MODEL Score Calculator is used by Test Administrators to score the WIDA MODEL Paper test and to generate a score report for students who have completed all four domains. It calculates scale and proficiency scores for Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing, as well as composite scores.

The calculator saves time and provides more accurate scores than the paper scoresheet.

The interface includes specific and clear instructions for entering students' scores. Once the scores are produced, the Test Administrator then enters any student demographic information required locally and prints a report.

MODEL Paper K-12 Scores

The Score Calculator provides specific instructions on how to enter students’ scores from the test session. After the Test Administrator enters all these scores, the calculator will output the following scores:

  • Listening, Reading, Speaking and Writing proficiency levels
  • Overall composite proficiency level
  • Oral Language proficiency level
  • Literacy proficiency level

Note: Scale scores are not reported for Kindergarten MODEL.

The Test Administrator then enters any student demographic information required locally, and prints a report.

Score Tracker Spreadsheet

The MODEL Score Tracker spreadsheet, available on the Training Toolkit CD-ROM in each kit, is an optional tool to help educators locally store and track MODEL results for each student. As scores are collected for each student over a period of time, it allows educators to plot students' progress on a chart. The Training Toolkit CD-ROM also includes user instructions for this spreadsheet and a completed example.

Note: This calculator adjusts students' scores according to their grade levels.
