Planning for Student Assessment: Leader's Guide. Bilingual Evaluation Technical Assistance, Workshop III.
California Univ., Los Angeles. Center for the Study of Evaluation.
This leader's manual for a workshop on planning bilingual student assessment describes the workshop, presents information necessary to provide instruction leading to workshop exercises, and provides step-by-step instructions for conducting the workshop. The workshop leader should become familiar with this manual as well as with the workshop text and the participant's handbook. The manual aids the leader in providing workshop participants with practice in planning bilingual education evaluations and with an overview of the issues that should be addressed during such evaluations. The topics include: (1) how to organize the workshop; (2) instructions for using the leader's manual; (3) identifying legal assessment obligations (participant list of program assessment needs based on legislation and funding source requirements, assessment in bilingual programs, and coordinating assessment needs); (4) what to test (categorizing tests and test selection); (5) initial screening of tests (basic terminology, two simulated test descriptions, and test selection); (6) using tests; and (7) final screening - comparing the technical merits of tests (review of technical terms, reading a printout, reading a technical manual, and text selection simulation).
