A much-needed resource for helping teachers assess the increasing number of diverse students and English learners in today’s K-12 classrooms, Assessment of Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students details effective classroom assessment practices and organises recommended strategies around the four critical dimensions of the CLD student biography: the sociocultural, linguistic, academic, and cognitive dimensions.

Written from the perspective of a differential lens on assessment practices for CLD students, the book focuses on the student as the driving force behind its narrative and organisation and examines the Who, Where, What, When, and How of using appropriate assessment practices with CLD students.
