Reflection: Pre-Tests Introduction to Scientific Inquiry: Pre Assessment - Section 2: Pre-Assessment


Assessment of English Language Learners can be tricky.  Even when an assessment is read to them, you cannot be certain that language and vocabulary will not interfere with your results.  This is especially true with content area assessments that have difficult concept-laden vocabulary words.  I never take my assessments at face value with my English Language Learners, and always follow up with a one-on-one interview to determine what they really know.
