Tool aims to help schools better identify English language learners
from Education Week
A team of researchers has developed a new tool to help educators evaluate the effectiveness of the surveys that schools use to identify English language learners. The Regional Educational Laboratory's English Language Learners Alliance has created the Home Language Survey Data Quality Self-Assessment to aid state education departments and school districts improve the quality of data collected through home-language surveys — questionnaires used to identify students eligible for special help in learning English — and learn more about how the surveys are administered.
