Math skills among Spanish-speaking DLLs: Implications for assessment


Focusing specifically on DLLs from Spanish-speaking backgrounds, this brief addresses the question: For which DLLs is it most important to conduct math assessments in the home language? It does so by examining how DLLs who have different levels of English and Spanish language skills relative to one another (i.e., English dominant, balanced bilingual, or Spanish dominant) perform on math assessments administered both in Spanish and English.
