Assessment of Students in Bilingual Education


by Carmen Mercado & Migdalia Romero — 1993

In this chapter, we trace. the developments in assessment in bilingual education and the legislation that has driven it. We move from the more traditional forms of testing which dominated the field in its early history to the nontraditional forms which have developed and continue to evolve. We then explore the potential that these nontraditional forms of assessment have for transforming both the teaching-learning process and the assessment process to the benefit of students and teachers alike.
