In this video, John M. Hintze, Professor in the Department of Student Development at the University of Massachusetts Amherst explains why it is important to consider whether an assessment is biased against a specific sub-group.
This webinar, led by Dr. Julie Esparza Brown, Dr. Amanda Sanford, and Erin Lolich focused on improving educational outcomes for ELLs through culturally and linguistically responsive implementation of an RTI framework in the area of elementary reading. Specifically, it discussed critical considerations to appropriately utilize screening and progress monitoring data with ELL students to improve reading outcomes by addressing the factors that influence ELL students' academic success. Recommendations were provided for the appropriate selection and use of screening and progress monitoring data based on students' unique backgrounds and needs. A case study was provided to illustrate these recommendations with a first grade ELL student.
