Built-In Assessment Instruments in an Instructional Program Designed for Spanish-Speaking Children.
Instructional materials and procedures to be used by Spanish-speaking children learning English call for assessment strategies not normally employed. Assessment scores aid in the selection of students, in student placement, in identifying children in need of remediation, and in assessing student performance at the end of the program. Assessment scores, along with attendance records, are useful in evaluating program effectiveness and in conducting followup studies which evaluate student progress beyond the program. Assessment strategies and procedures are described which have been incorporated into SWRL's English Language and Concepts Program for Spanish-Speaking Children (LCS), a program proven to be robust at a high level of effectiveness.
