This book helps educators see how excellent assessment can lead to excellent instruction and improved student learning.

It is a resource that district level educators, school administrators, resource specialists, as well as classroom teachers will find indispensible. This book helps educators see how excellent assessment can lead to excellent instruction and improved student learning. Author: David E. Freeman, Yvonne S. Freeman, Professors Published On: 2005-07-29.

This book lays out a clear and compelling argument that assessment and equity are not mutually exclusive concepts in educational programs for the nation's burgeoning population of multilingual learners.

The focus is on overall assessment including standardized assessments and diagnostic assessments, however some chapters do break into different subjects. I really wish that educators would provide less educational theory and more practical tools that actually work in a real classroom.

Both practicing and aspiring educators will benefit from: Rubrics, charts, checklists, surveys, and other ready-to-use tools.

A good book about how to Assess English Language Learners. The focus is on overall assessment including standardized assessments and diagnostic assessments, however some chapters do break into different subjects.

I really wish that educators would provide less educational theory and more practical tools that actually work in a real classroom. Seriously. As a middle school ELL certified Language Arts teacher, I was hoping for more from this book.

This book has some other assessment ideas but it very dry and repeats the same info within the same chapter over and over again. I have both this book and Authentic Assessment for ELLs: Practical Approaches for Teachers and you do not need this book if you have that one.

Good book

Although this book was written specifically for ELL teachers, the information is useful for any teacher. The topics covered range from the purposes of assessments, to differences among assessments, tests, and evaluations, to using rubrics and making your own. The information is straightforward and easily applied to any classroom situation. The important aspects of each content area are covered with useful suggestions on application. There are many tables which clearly summarize the information in the texts. Appendicies at the end of each chapter may be used for many purposes - from classroom to Instructional strategist levels. From one point of view, ALL our students are learning the English language, this book really helps.

I bought this for a class, and I have found usage for this book outside of it. There are many examples of lesson plans within it which are useful for any teacher who not only teaches CLD students, but also those who want to make their lessons more inclusive. Plus it is very inexpensive!

Used this book for an ELL class. Easy to read, well organized. Lots of great handouts/visuals with regards to rubrics and other topics related to assessment. Had a handful of typos which is why it loses a star--proofread your work!
Great book!
