A Manual for Screening and Assessing Students of Limited English Proficiency.
Bernal, Ernest M.; Tucker, James A.
The steps in the manual are designed to ensure that developmentally normal limited English proficiency (LEP) students are properly placed and to increase the validity of the special education referral-assessment-placement system. The construct of LEP is explained, and procedures for selecting two language proficiency tests are outlined. Criteria for decision making for the four phases of the screening assessment process are listed: Phase 1--informal language screening with the student/home language questionnaire; Phase 2--formal language assessment; Phase 3--formal educational screening; and Phase 4--additional testing.
