Gift of Tongues: Passing the Ohio Mathematics Graduation Test
Goll, Paulette S.
Education, v129 n3 p547-555 Spr 2009
"Gift of Tongues: Passing the Ohio Mathematics Graduation Test" examines the Ohio Graduation Mathematics Tests of 2004, 2005, and 2006 in the context of bilingual test takers at one of Cleveland's high schools and reports findings from a promising, bilingual pilot project in 2007 that may point to a new strategy for passing the high-stakes test. Additionally, the paper examines the released test items to focus attention on language hurdles faced by students for whom English is a second language.
