REGISTER FOR OUR SPECIAL WEBINAR TRAINING SESSION:
GETTING TO GRIPS WITH ASSESSING BMLS
MONDAY, 24th JULY, 2023
* This 1-hour, recorded webinar will be available for viewing on this day (with access for up to 7 days)
DID YOU KNOW THAT EVEN EXPERIENCED TEACHERS REPORT THAT ACCURATELY ASSESSING THEIR BILINGUAL & MULTILINGUAL LEARNERS STILL REMAINS CHALLENGING?
Whether it’s diagnostic testing, assessment of progress or even evaluation of BMLs’ learning abilities; teachers can feel confused. Understanding the role that language proficiency plays in student learning adds an extra layer of complexity to the conversation. Our goal as educators is to ensure that all students receive an equitable opportunity to learn and demonstrate what they know. This webinar will focus on helping educators understand the most important considerations while giving them exposure to the most appropriate assessment tools and practises. Individuals will receive a resource package with some informal assessment tools. Please note, this is a paid webinar ($35 USD) and a certificate will be provided for those who watch the webinar and then complete a short quiz following.
