  20. 20. (continue) 123 students preferred oral assessments to reading/writing students scored much higher on interview exams than on short answers, essays, or multiple choice What does this tell us about mandated State tests? That many of our students probably know the answers to the questions and can tell us the answers orally.

  24. 24. Are traditional tests even appropriate for our English Learners? Chapter 4 mentions other effective strategies and assessments that have proven to work for ELLs. Portfolios “Teachers can use portfolios to assess students progress over time...Portfolio assessment is NOT used to compare students to one another; rather it is used to compare the student’s current work with what he or she did in the past as a means of assessing growth and therefore to help the teacher make appropriate decisions about the direction of future instruction.”
