The screener is not designed for this purpose. You should either use the WIDA MODEL, which must be purchased from WIDA, or use a locally developed assessment. Keep in mind that formative information that ESL teachers can gather during ongoing interaction with students is very valuable when considering a student’s current ability and level of need. The WIDA proficiency level descriptors, rubrics, and ELD standards can be used to help in this type of analysis.
