A Resource Compendium of Assessment Instruments Which Can Be Used To Help Schools in the Education of LEP Students.
Test instruments designed for limited English proficient (LEP) students from pre-school through adult are reviewed in this annotated bibliography. The assessments cited have been evaluated for reliability, validity, and equity, the latter being an emerging criterion in the process of evaluating assessment instruments. The tests most commonly used in bilingual education environments are represented, but it is noted that there is no 100% reliable instrument that is tailored to individual LEP student needs. The tests are grouped under the following categories: achievement tests (17 tests); language proficiency (23 tests); tests of aptitude, general ability, intelligence or cognitive development (13 tests); vocational, career, and attitudinal inventories (four inventories); and personality inventories (two inventories). Each citation includes a description, author, grade level, administration time, type of administration, language(s) assessed, and publisher. (LB)
