TOP REVIEWS FROM ASSESSING ACHIEVEMENT WITH THE ELL IN MIND
Good overview of assessment for ELLs. Sometimes the videos were a little too similar in format to maintain interest. I liked the links to outside videos and resources. Overall, well done.

I thoroughly enjoyed the course. It was a great learning for me and to understand how assessments can be created and modified for different learners.
I strongly recommend this course since it unveils important facts about the evaluation process for educators and students as well.

Frequently Asked Questions
When will I have access to the lectures and assignments?
Access to lectures and assignments depends on your type of enrollment. If you take a course in audit mode, you will be able to see most course materials for free. To access graded assignments and to earn a Certificate, you will need to purchase the Certificate experience, during or after your audit. If you don't see the audit option:
- The course may not offer an audit option. You can try a Free Trial instead, or apply for Financial Aid.
- The course may offer 'Full Course, No Certificate' instead. This option lets you see all course materials, submit required assessments, and get a final grade. This also means that you will not be able to purchase a Certificate experience.
