Introduction
The Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (“the Department”) administered the
Assessing Comprehension and Communication in English State-to-State for English Language
Learners (ACCESS for ELLs) assessments for the first time in January 2013. Developed by the WIDA
Consortium at the University of Wisconsin, ACCESS for ELLs is replacing the Massachusetts English
Proficiency Assessment (MEPA) as the state’s annual assessment of English language proficiency. As
part of this transition, the Department undertook a statistical study to bridge the results the 2012
MEPA and 2013 ACCESS for ELLs tests. The study had three purposes:



to prepare concordance tables linking the 2013 ACCESS scores to comparable 2012 MEPA
scores;
to provide the basis for determining the attainment of English proficiency in each district and
in the state; and
to provide the basis for determining the progress made by Massachusetts English language
learners (ELLs) in learning English from 2012 to 2013.
In a related effort, the Department calculated transitional Student Growth Percentiles (SGPs) and
provided these to districts in June 2013. The transitional SGPs were calculated from students’ prior
MEPA scores and the current year’s ACCESS for ELLs scores. While the SGPs were not used to make
progress determinations for students, they were used to assist in determining the relative progress
of individual students in learning English, and to establish the validity of the bridging method
eventually used to determine progress.
This document provides an overview of the bridge study. A technical report that provides detailed
information on the methods used and other considerations will be available in fall 2013.
Background
ELLs are required to participate in annual statewide assessments of English language proficiency to
determine their current levels of performance in English and whether they still require language
services as part of their publicly funded instruction. States are required under Title III of the No Child
Left Behind Act (2001) to report on the achievement of these students and on their progress in
learning English. Progress is determined by comparing the current and prior years’ English
proficiency assessment results for each student who has a score in two successive years.
The state’s transition from MEPA in 2012 to the ACCESS for ELLs assessment in 2013 presented a
challenge for Massachusetts in meeting the requirement to determine and report the progress of ELLs in
learning English. In response, the state conducted a bridge study to link the results of the 2013 ACCESS
for ELLs tests and the 2012 MEPA tests, and to estimate the equivalent scores on each test. The study
results will be used to determine whether Title III districts and the state have met their Annual
Measurable Achievement Objective in 2013 for making progress in learning English (also known as
AMAO 1). Local educators and policy makers will also use this information to make reasonable
comparisons between scores from the 2012 and 2013 assessments and to make appropriate decisions
about whether to provide support and language services to individual ELLs in the 20132014 school year.

Equipercentile Linking Method Used to Bridge ACCESS for ELLs
and MEPA Results
The bridge study involved the use of a statistical method called “equipercentile linking,” which bridges
the scores from one test to another using percentile ranks. The percentile rank of a score indicates the
percentage of scores at that grade level that were lower than the score in question. (For example, if a
score of 450 on the grade 5 MEPA test received a percentile rank of 40, then 40 percent of scores at
that grade level were lower than 450.)
For each test (2012 MEPA and 2013 ACCESS), the Department assigned a percentile rank to each score
at every grade level. The Department then used these percentile ranks to identify a “comparable”
MEPA score for each 2013 ACCESS composite score at each grade. For example, at grade 2, an ACCESS
score of 291 was considered comparable to a MEPA score of 477 because both scores fell at the 15th
percentile. A grade 2 student who scored 291 on the 2013 ACCESS test was therefore assigned an
estimated MEPA score of 477 for the purpose of the bridge study.
Table 1 shows a sample of comparable MEPA and ACCESS composite scores for grade 2, based on
percentile ranks. The scatterplot in Graph 1 shows the same data in graphical form.
The concordance tables in the Appendix of this report list the comparable scores for ACCESS for ELLs
and MEPA side-by-side according to the percentile rank of each score in each grade. The concordance
tables were used as the basis for determining progress as described on page 6 of this report.

Assumptions for Conducting the Bridge Study
In conducting the bridge study, the Department relied on the following key assumptions about the
MEPA and ACCESS for ELLs tests, and about the student populations that took them:



The ELL populations in 2012 and 2013 (the two years of the study) were similar
demographically; if small differences in the student populations existed, corrections would
be made by “weighting” each population statistically.
The ELL subgroup would perform similarly in 2012 and 2013 on the two different
assessments of English language proficiency (i.e., MEPA and ACCESS for ELLs), and the
subgroup’s proficiency levels would be accurately represented in the results of each test.
Although there are differences between the two tests, each is intended to assess similar
content (that is, the English proficiency of ELLs in the areas of speaking, listening, reading,
and writing) and ultimately to determine the readiness of students to access standardsbased content in English.
However, because the two tests measured different English language development standards, were
given in different grade clusters, and used different formats for the oral (listening and speaking)
portions, it is important to emphasize that the bridge study results should be regarded as wellinformed estimates of the comparable scores on the two tests.
Description of the Student Sample
The bridge study was conducted, and the concordance tables developed, based on two independent
samples of assessment results from: a) the students who took the 2012 MEPA test, and b) the
students who took the 2013 ACCESS for ELLs test. Students were included in the study only if they
took all four subtests: speaking, listening, reading, and writing.
For the purpose of the study, the student sample for each test was divided into two groups: “paired”
and “unpaired.” Students in the paired group are those who took all four subtests of both the 2012

MEPA and the 2013 ACCESS for ELLs tests (that is, the students with paired composite scores).
“Unpaired” students are those who took all four subtests of one test, but not of both tests. Table 2
shows the number of students in each group, by grade level. The “paired” and “unpaired” samples
were used together to calculate the equipercentile ranks for the concordance tables. Only the
“paired” sample was used to make progress determinations.

Table 3 presents the demographic information for the two student populations (2012 MEPA testtakers and 2013 ACCESS for ELLs test-takers). The percentage of students in each demographic
category across both tests is quite similar, and therefore no “weighting” of either population was
necessary to correct for differences. Effect sizes near zero, shown in the right column, indicate no or
very small group differences. The effect size statistics were calculated using the pooled standard
deviations shown in the fourth column of the table.

Annual Measurable Achievement Objectives
States are required to report on both the attainment and progress of ELL students in learning
English, and whether Title III districts and the state have met their Annual Measurable Achievement
Objectives (AMAOs) for attainment and progress, per Title III of the No Child Left Behind law. The
bridge study was intended to produce results that could be used by districts and the state in
reporting both AMAO 1 (student progress in learning English) and AMAO 2 (attainment of English
proficiency). Additional information on AMAOs is available at
www.doe.mass.edu/ell/amao/2012/guide.pdf.

AMAO: Attainment of English Proficiency
Through 2012, attainment targets for students were based on the MEPA performance levels (Levels
1, 2, 3, 4, and 5). The upper half of MEPA Level 4 (called Level 4 High) signaled the point at which a
student could generally become a candidate to exit ELL status. Therefore, the mid-point of Level 4
was chosen as the minimum attainment target. Because the actual scaled score needed to reach
Level 4 High varied by grade-span test, the mid-score-point of Level 4 also varied for each gradespan test.
Analysis of the 2012 MEPA data indicated that the characteristics of the ELL student population vary
widely from district to district. Therefore, the Department used statewide data to set individual
attainment targets for each district based on the number of years its ELL students had been enrolled
in a Massachusetts school. The minimum statewide attainment target had been set at one
percentage point below the average number of students in the state who scored at the mid-point of
Level 4, weighing the number of years (0 through 5+) in which ELL students had been enrolled in
Massachusetts schools.
Attainment targets for 2013 were calculated for Massachusetts districts based on this procedure,
using the concordance tables to pair each 2013 ACCESS for ELLs test score with its comparable 2012
MEPA score. Attainment results for the state and for each district will be calculated and reported in
fall 2013. In 2014, new rules will be proposed, based on guidelines provided to states by the WIDA
consortium for gauging attainment of English proficiency.
AMAO: Progress in Learning English
The “Step Approach”
From 2008 to 2012, Massachusetts used the Step Approach shown in Table 4 as the basis for making
progress determinations using the MEPA results. The Step Approach entailed dividing the five MEPA
performance levels into “steps” as shown in the table. Levels 1 through 4 were divided into two steps
each (e.g., Level 2 Low, Level 2 High). Level 5 was divided into five smaller steps. A student was deemed
to have “made progress” if the test results from two successive years improved by the requisite number
of “steps,” as indicated by the Step Approach Decision Rules (shown adjacent to the table).
For this bridge study, Massachusetts elected to use the same Step Approach method and decision rules
that had been previously approved by the U.S. Department of Education (USED) for making progress
calculations for AMAO 1. In the study, progress calculations were based on two scores: 1) the student’s
actual 2012 MEPA score, and 2) the estimated MEPA score the student would have received in 2013,
based on equipercentile linking of his or her ACCESS for ELLs score. After translating these two scores
into MEPA performance levels, Massachusetts determined, based on existing Step Approach Decision
Rules, whether each student made progress along the continuum of MEPA performance levels from
2012 to 2013. The concordance tables presented in the Appendix of this document show how
students’ 2013 ACCESS for ELLs scores were translated into MEPA performance levels.
In 2014, the Department will have two consecutive years of ACCESS for ELLs test results on which to
base progress determinations, and will propose new rules to USED for determining student progress
along the six-level continuum of ACCESS for ELLs, in consultation with WIDA technical staff.

Appendix: ACCESS and MEPA Concordance Tables
As a result of the bridge study, concordance tables were generated that provide a comparison of
ACCESS for ELLs and MEPA composite performance levels and scaled scores. These tables are
presented on the following pages. A separate table is provided for each grade, since the relationship
between the two sets of scores varies by grade. The tables are intended for use by local educators to
identify similar MEPA and ACCESS for ELLs scores for students in each grade level, especially for
those students who took both tests.
