Teachers can build and demonstrate their assessment literacy and ability to effectively implement the assessment process by learning how to interpret standardized tests scores to determine next steps in instruction.

Students have studied concepts and practices for assessing linguistically diverse students during the course. Students now view a power point about interpreting standardized test scores. They take notes and discuss how to use these scores in their practice.


    1. For this activity, we have given the Fact Sheet that accomanied the most recent Joint Memorandum sent to states and school districts identifying key areas where for 20 years schools have typically been out of compliance.
    2. We provided a worksheet to guide your exporation of how your school and district responds to the elements we have identified as relevant to assesment.
    3. Review the item on the Fact Sheet and then identify how your district responds to the item and then consider how they might respond. 
    4. If you have further interest this link will take you to the letter that accompanies the fact sheet.
