Assessment Modifications

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
Simplify instructions
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.
