Presented at: MEXTESOL 2014

This presentation will describe the research through partnerships with several Mexican states, to develop new assessments that are mindful of the teaching and learning processes that occur in Mexican classrooms. These valid and reliable assessments are designed to measure the English language proficiency of adults in Mexico. The presenters will review the development of these culturally responsive assessments to demonstrate how formative and summative evaluation fit into the context of the CEFR and the SEP.
