MEDU 585 - Assessment for ELL/Bilingual Students English Language Learners

3.00 credit hours
This course provides a comprehensive understanding of using assessment data to make informed decisions for the education of English language learners (ELLs). Students are made aware of critical issues related to the assessment of culturally and linguistically diverse learners and the ability to select, construct, administer, interpret and communicate the results of measurement instruments appropriate for English language learners based on best practices in research and professional literature. Students investigate a variety of formal and informal assessment tools to determine and monitor ELLs' English proficiency in academic settings. Students are also involved in diagnosing and providing effective instructions to meet the needs of ELLs. This course requires 25 hours of field experience.
