Considerations for Meaningful Classroom Assessment of ELs in Math and Science
Rebecca Kopriva, Ph.D. and Mari Rasmussen, Ph.D.
August 20, 2010
This webinar will focus on how teachers might collect information in their classrooms about how students who are English Learners (ELs) think, understand, and develop skills in mathematics, science, and other academic content areas. Dr. Kopriva will also focus on some considerations that are key to helping content area teachers understand how to meaningfully collect accurate information about what ELs know, particularly when it comes to effectively measuring their higher order thinking skills. Issues and methods for designing and developing effective assessment activities for ELs will be outlined. Additionally Dr. Rasmussen will provide an overview of how these considerations compliment the resources provided to LEAs by SEAs Title III Directors.
