WHAT THE ELL?
Tip: Assess EL students according to what they can do rather than what they cannot do.
Standardized tests or even teacher-created tests can’t always measure EL students’ progress accurately or authentically. Instead, measure students by what they can do at any point in time,
Technique: Modify the tests you give.
Avoid test questions asking for discrete information
Make a simplified language version of the test
Provide word banks
Give students extra time to complete tests
Give students objective tests: matching, multiple choice, etc. Make all or part of the exam oral.
Something to think about....
“All things are subject to interpretation. Whichever interpretation prevails at a given time is a function of power and not truth.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche
