What We Are Learning About Assessing Multilingual Learners

Given the complexity of multilingual reading development, in order to understand the needs of these students, focusing in particular on native Spanish speakers, we need to select equitable assessments to plan effective instruction and determine risk. Learning Objectives: 1) Participants will learn the importance and rationale for assessing word reading in the language taught; 2) Participants will learn why testing vocabulary in English and in Spanish is not as effective as using instead a Spanish-English conceptually scored expressive vocabulary measure. Examples will be provided in this short 20-minute recording.
