Assessment Challenges for Business Education in Changing Times
Hazari, Sunil; Gaytan, Jorge; North, Alexa
Journal of Applied Research for Business Instruction, v6 n4 2008
In addition to the difficult task of identifying teaching methods that ensure student learning, the American educational system is facing significant challenges. Schools are struggling to maintain standards for high-quality teaching while trying to address the learning needs of students with Limited English Proficiency (LEP). The same struggle is experienced by individuals involved in the preparation of business teachers. Adding complexity to this problem is the fact that teacher preparation programs face increased demands for accountability by state and federal organizations, parents, and the community at large. This increased accountability has a direct impact on the assessments being used with LEP students and poses many challenges for business teacher educators throughout the U.S. The purpose of this article is to examine assessment issues in regard to learning needs of LEP students and to discuss the impact of federal regulations that have affected teaching and testing in the classroom. Strategies for addressing these challenges are also provided.
