ONPAR - Math and Science Assessments for English Language Learners: A Computer Based Approach
We presented research findings on the comparability of ONPAR to the New England Common Assessment Program (NECAP) math and science assessments. These studies also examined the effectiveness of ONPAR on native English speakers, and on students with varying levels of English proficiency. An analysis of the efficacy of our customized user interface, innovative item types, and multiple methods of language support was presented. Low language versions of ONPAR with Russian, Spanish, or English text to audio features were compared with very low language versions which had no text to audio. In addition, strategies used to analyze and create ONPAR items such as item deconstructions and the development process were presented.
