BSM Assesses Linguistic Proficiency in English/Spanish.
This paper answers a series of questions concerning the Bilingual Syntax Measure (BSM): what it is, who it is designed for, what it consists of, how long it takes to administer the test, who should administer it, where the BSM should be given, how to conduct the assessment, and how to score the test. The paper concludes that, overall, the BSM can be useful for diagnosing a student's strengths and weaknesses in the basic structures of a language, for student placement, and to measure the degree a student has maintained or lost certain basic structures. The measure offers instructional suggestions for each level. (Author/IRT)
