Assesment and ESL: An Alternative Approach (2nd Ed.)

Veteran educators Barbara Law and Mary Eckes present an in-depth discussion of what assessment really means for ELLs and ELL educators in this follow-up to The More-Than-Just Surviving Handbook. One of the strengths of this guide is that Law and Eckes simultaneously explore the big picture (what teachers need to know and trends in assessment), the programmatic implications (how to grade and when to exit students), and hands-on strategies regarding the details and mechanics of assessment (how to record your observations and present information to stakeholders). What is perhaps most refreshing, however, is the compassion, common sense, and humor they demonstrate throughout the book, underscored by numerous examples of student work and personal experiences.
