  • ‘American Indian English language learners: misunderstood and under-served ‘, this article is about the complicated situation of  American Indian schoolchildren who do not necessarily speak their heritage languages; yet, their academic English skills are inadequate to support content mastery. Students whose first language is an American Indian language and who are learning English as a second language (ESL) are easier to identify as ELLs. Students who do not speak a heritage language but have not acquired academic English proficiency are harder to identify. This unique group of ELLs had their English acquisition framed by parents/grandparents or guardians themselves who were ELLs who did not fully acquire Standard English and currently speak and model a non-standard or non-academically proficient variety of English.

  • ‘Culture fair assessment: addressing equity issues in the context of primary mathematics teaching and learning’, this article provides the background and context to the important issue of assessment and equity in relation to Indigenous students in Australia.  The authors highlight how teachers need to distinguish the ‘funds of knowledge’ that Indigenous students draw on and how teachers need to adopt culturally responsive pedagogy to open up the curriculum and assessment practice to allow for different ways of knowing and being.

6. Ortiz, S. (2002). Best practices in non-discriminatory assessments. Best Practices in School Psychology. National Association of School Psychologist.

7. Siegel, M., Wisserh, C., & Halverson, K. (2008). A framework for equitable assessment. The Science Teacher, 44.

  • ‘A framework for equitable assessment’, in this article the authors address the fact that ‘teachers have many dilemmas when it comes to assessing a classroom of diverse students. Teachers need to find out what students really know while being fair to all students. They also need to learn how to alter assessments without watering down content’.  In response to this the authors describe ‘The Five Principles of Equitable Assessment’.

8.Using informal assessment for English language learners. (n.d.). Colorin colorado.

  • ‘Using informal assessment for English language learners’ is a review of many forms of informal assessments and about how informal assessments can provide a more well-rounded picture of their skills, abilities, and ongoing progress
