The descriptions of 200 tests for a variety of language groups are designed for use with the test file maintained by the Evaluation, Dissemination, and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education (EDAC). The content areas covered include reading, mathematics, self-concept, language dominance, language proficiency, and intelligence. Tests are included for all age ranges, and are produced by commercial publishers and local school districts. They are organized into sections of Chinese-language, French-language, Portugese-language, Spanish-language and English-as-a-second-language tests, tests of general interest, and tests in other languages. Each description includes the test name, author, publisher, date of publication, stated purpose, group or individual administration, intended grade level(s), subareas or subtests, intended language group, administration time, and cost (when available).
