Aligned to the WIDA Standards and delivered via the same online platform as the WIDA Access (DRC’s INSIGHT), LAS Links® Online can be used to monitor student progress in acquiring English language skills throughout the school year in Speaking, Listening, Reading and Writing.  This powerful research-based assessment allows teachers to target areas of student language deficiencies and build upon areas of strength. The platform enables educators to understand the progress of students as they move through the stages of language acquisition, from grades preK–12. LAS Links Español may also be used to monitor the language progress of students in your Dual Language program.
