Common Core test experts explain ELL and special education supports
from Education Week
The two experts closest to the development of features designed to make the new Common Core assessments accessible to all students, including English language learners, appeared on edweek.org to answer questions from the field. Magda Chia, the director of system design and support for underrepresented students for Smarter Balanced; and Tamara Reavis, a senior adviser for assessment, accessibility, and equity at PARCC; spent an hour taking questions and explaining the range of supports and features for students with disabilities and English language learners.
