I evaluated this afternoon a free 45 minute simultcast that discusses the assessment of English Language Learners and I was very pleased. This same theme of culturally competent practices were followed as the one of the video discussed in my previous blog entry and they even had a slide presentation to go along with it. Here is their offical description:
This 45-minute webcast is an introduction to assessment for teachers of English language learners. Dr. Lorraine Valdez Pierce will discuss performance-based and standardized assessments; assessment as a tool for informing instruction; use of assessment to reinforce reading comprehension; and student self-assessment and self-monitoring.
I would like to input from your own evaluations!!!
