Should tests be given in other languages for ESL students?
State tests should be in different languages so the ESL kids could understand them, get a higher grade, and also not repeat the year.
You might know the subject you are being tested in very well, maybe even better than your english, but with the fact that it is in another language, you are not going to be comfortable, and you will not have the opportunity to show your best on the test
If the tests are in your native language, you will have the chance to really show what you know about the actual subject.
English should not be a barrier, a test is for students to show what they know about that specific subject, not your language
