Summary

Assessment of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students seeks to pose and answer the important questions that are arising as levels of culturally and linguistically diverse (CLD) learners increase in classrooms across the country. This classroom-ready resource places the emphasis of assessment on the student as an individual and explores questions such as “Where should assessment efforts for CLD students be concentrated?;” ''What are the key aims of assessments?;” and “How should teachers use CLD student assessment findings?” The 3rd Edition has been completely updated with a new chapter on data-driven problem solving, new Teaching Tips, Activity Lesson Plans, and more.
