Making Consistent Decisions about Accommodations for English Language Learners: Research Summit Proceedings

In March of 2009, researchers and practitioners convened in Austin, Texas for a research summit on linguistic accommodations for English language learners. The summit and the resulting online proceedings address the four essential questions listed below.

  1. What do research and best practice tell us about selecting and implementing linguistic accommodations in instruction and on assessments for English language learners?
  2. What is the state of current practice in the selection and use of linguistic accommodations in instruction and on assessments for English language learners?
  3. Where should we begin in helping educators select and provide appropriate linguistic accommodations for English language learners in instruction and on assessments?
  4. What questions require further study with regard to linguistic accommodations for English language learners in instruction and on assessments?
