Sometimes it is easy to assume that many English Language Learners (ELLs) will excel in math because math is a “universal language” and students may have had experience learning math in schools. This assumption can lead educators to make unfair judgments about students. This screener is to be used as a tool to see if ELLs can complete simple mathematical problems. This is to be used as a conversation and not an end all be all for a student’s math performance. If a student performs poorly it could be an indication of interrupted schooling and further investigation should take place. If a student does well it does not mean they will be on grade level for mathematics. This screener has reduced language so students can focus on content instead of the format of the questions.
