Testing and Assessing
Posted: Mon Jun 11, 2012 2:37 pm
I have written at least 4 different test for my ELL students this year. Very new at this and find it really challenging sometimes. I know that some of my students know the work because as I assess them during the week they can give me respond to questions, they say comments. I really think they get it and they are learning and I am so proud of them. When they take the test it's like they never learned anything. I try to vary the test with multiple choice, open ended questions etc. and some seeem to fail anyway. I think I may have to reevaluate the way I form the test or something. Not sure, but this is very challenging because I know they know the work. Any suggestions?
