To treat them fairly and equally, we must treat
them differently!

  • 3. Multiple choice items
  • 4. Opportunity to explain responses
  • Be careful! Language ability doesnt always
    equal science ability!!!!
  • 5. Two phase testing Pre-test to establish
    ability level. Give various tests to match
    independent competency levels.
  • 6. Self-evaluation
  • (Giving hints?)

48
