Book News Annotation:

Theories about diversity abound and so do books about them; but few offer practical advice in assessment. Here the authors address acculturation issues, such as the disproportionate representation of certain ethnic and cultural groups in special education, and the legal and ethical requirements involved in equity of assessment. They also examine bilingual education, equity in pre-referral, interpreters, the interview process, cultural factors in psycho-educational assessment, integrated methods of assessing language proficiency and cognition, and practical ways to conduct academic assessments. Forms and checklists are included to use in making equitable assessments in English and Spanish.

Synopsis:

This is the first book to present a practical, problem-solving approach and hands-on tools and techniques for assessing English language learners and culturally diverse students in K-12 settings. It meets a crucial need among practitioners and special educators working in today's schools. Provided are research-based, step-by-step procedures for conducting effective interviews with students, parents, and teachers; making the best use of interpreters; addressing special issues in the prereferral process; and conducting accurate, unbiased assessments of academic achievement, intellectual functioning, language proficiency, and acculturation. Among the book's special features are reproducible worksheets, questionnaires, and checklists--including several in both English and Spanish--in a ready-to-use, large-size format.

This book is in The Guilford Practical Intervention in the Schools Series.
