Assessment

Over at Curriculum Matters, my colleague Sean Cavanagh notes that the governing board for the National Assessment of Educational Progress will hold a public hearing on Monday, Nov. 9, to receive public input on policies for including English-language learners and students with disabilities on the test. The hearing will take place here in the nation’s capital.

I recently blogged about results for ELLs in the most recent math assessment that is part of NAEP. See the comments from readers to get a sense of some of the issues that arise in including ELLs in the test and making sense of their scores.
