Public Hearing Will Look at Inclusion of ELLs in NAEP
Over at Curriculum Matters, my colleague Sean Cavanagh notes that the governing board for the National Assessment of Educational Progress will hold a public hearing on Monday, Nov. 9, to receive public input on policies for including English-language learners and students with disabilities on the test. The hearing will take place here in the nation's capital.
I recently blogged about results for ELLs in the most recent math assessment that is part of NAEP. See the comments from readers to get a sense of some of the issues that arise in including ELLs in the test and making sense of their scores.
