WIDA MODEL for Kindergarten
WIDA MODEL for Kindergarten (Kindergarten MODEL) is a flexible, on-demand English language proficiency assessment. The test can be administered at any time during the school year, depending on the needs of the district, school, teacher or student.
Kindergarten MODEL provides opportunities for students to demonstrate their proficiency in each of the four language domains of Listening, Speaking, Reading and Writing.
The test is divided into two sections, each of which assesses all four language domains.
Test Administration Time
45 minutes total test time
Kindergarten MODEL is an individually administered, adaptive assessment designed to take approximately 45 minutes or less per student. Students are presented only with questions that the test administrator, based on the student’s response to questions in the previous level, has a reasonable expectation that the student will be able to understand and respond to.
Kindergarten MODEL test kits contain all materials necessary to train test administrators and to deliver the assessment.
Test administrators use the WIDA MODEL Score Calculator to calculate students’ scores and generate score reports for Kindergarten MODEL.
