Individual Characteristics Questionnaire

This is an example of the Individual Characteristics Questionnaire (ICQ), which is part of WIDA Alternate ACCESS. The ICQ captures characteristics of students who take Alternate ACCESS. Test Administrators will fill out the ICQ for each student and that information will be reported on the Individual Student Report. ICQ information can help educator teams make program decisions for students. Prior to administering Alternate ACCESS, download and print this example ICQ and use it to consult with Individual Education Plan (IEP) team members about students.

Disclaimer: The ICQ was designed for print. WIDA intends to take steps in the future to make a version that is web accessible.
