Given the growing population of English language learners (ELLs) in schools across the country, it is essential that school psychologists, teachers and school administrators recognize the importance of accurate and meaningful assessments for ELLs and are skilled at designing, conducting and interpreting such assessments.  Assessing Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students: A Practical Guide will help educators gain this important knowledge and develop these critical skills.

Written by Robert L. Rhodes, Salvador Hector Ochoa and Samuel O. Ortiz, the book describes a thorough, integrated approach to assessing culturally and linguistically diverse students. The authors provide step-by-step guidance on creating and administering valid assessments of ELLs while meeting legal and ethical requirements.   In addition, other important topics related to educating and assessing English language learners are explored. These include

  • Conducting effective interviews with students and parents
  • Making the best use of interpreters
  • Addressing language history and related issues in the pre-referral process to prevent inproperly placing ELLs in special education
  • Creating a school culture that celebrates diversity

Special features include ready-to-use reproducible worksheets, questionnaires and checklists, many in both English and Spanish. 

School psychologists, administrators, teachers and pre-professionals working with English language learners and culturally diverse populations all will find this book to be an invaluable resource.
