A Guide to Assessment Instruments for Limited English Speaking Students.
Pletcher, Barbara P.; And Others
The test reviews in this guide are intended to be used by school personnel charged with locating and administering appropriate assessment instruments to limited-English-speaking elementary school children. Assessment instruments are reviewed for native speakers of Chinese, French, Italian, Navajo, Portuguese, Spanish and Tagalog. Each instrument reviewed met nine criteria and was analyzed for cultural bias by a cultural and linguistic review panel. The descriptive information section of each entry contains the following types of information: purpose, score interpretation, grade range, target ethnic group, administration time, administrator requirements, author, source and cost. The following types of tests are included: Language Dominance, English Language Proficiency, Native Language Proficiency, Achievement in Multi-Subject Areas, Achievement in Individual Subjects, Learning Styles (for Spanish-Speaking), and General Ability and Scholastic Aptitude. Four appendices provide a comprehensive index, a source index, a glossary of technical terms, and a bibliography. (AMH)
