"With all the offerings that Margo Gottlieb provides in this book, she makes us yearn to not only cross the bridge of assessment, but also to feel confident when we get to the other side."
-From the Foreword by Else Hamayan
Illinois Resource Center

"This book is long overdue! Appropriate assessment and placement of ELLs is the most basic of all instructional processes. Without this, we cannot be sure we can measure student progress or address individual instructional needs."
-Margarita Calderón, Research Scientist
Center for Data-Driven Reform, Johns Hopkins University

-Timothy Boals, WIDA Consortium Director, Wisconsin Dept. of Public Instruction

"Assessing English Language Learners includes a multitude of evaluation instruments that readers can use as they assess their students. Margo Gottlieb helps teachers adjust assessment to different language proficiency levels and then evaluate language proficiency and content learning appropriately."
-David E. Freeman, Yvonne S. Freeman, Professors, Curriculum and Instruction, University of Texas, Brownsville
