To Refer or Not To Refer...What Are the Questions? Evaluative Questions for Procedural Implementation of an Effective Prereferral Phase for Culturally Diverse and Limited English Proficient Students.
Culturally specific behaviors must be considered in the pre-referral phase of assessing culturally diverse/limited-English-proficient students. Inferences regarding the reasons for students' performance reflect the knowledge base acquired by the school staff concerning a student's culture. Evaluative questions can gather data to assure non-biased assessment of culturally diverse/limited-English-proficient students. Such an evaluation involves: language proficiency/dominance information; review of records; observation; interviews with parent, teacher, and student; work samples; testing; and analytic teaching.
