Measuring Student Learning through Comprehensive Assessments

As I learn more about assessment and culture in EDU581 at Georgetown College for my ESL endorsement, I am learning about how to ensure that assessments are appropriate for my ELL students and that I am monitoring for content and language objectives. According to Mary Ann Lachat in Standards-Based Instruction and Assessment for English Language Learners, “Assessment and instructional practices in American schools were neither created nor designed to be responsive to the range of diversity represented in today’s ELL population, but current reforms in instruction and assessment are being viewed hopefully as offering more effective strategies for educating English language learners.”

Edutopia has an excellent article  regarding 5 Keys to Comprehensive Assessment.
