Updated guidance on EAL assessment
Guidance on the assessment of individuals for whom English is an additional language (EAL) and / or where there is a complex linguistic history.
calendar02/12/2019
The aim of this guidance is to highlight important issues in this area and to provide pointers to good practice, rather than be a comprehensive manual of how to assess individuals with EAL or complex linguistic histories.

Assessment in this area requires normal good assessment practice as well as an extra emphasis on knowledge and understanding of how a first language(s) (L1) might affect performance in tests of literacy attainment and cognitive processing in a second language (L2) i.e. English.
