New Grant Awarded to Prof. Robert Bayley and Prof. Jamal Abedi

Robert Bayley (Linguistics) and Jamal Abedi (Education) have received a Lyle Spencer Research Award from the Spencer Foundation for a four-year million-dollar project, “Distinguishing Low Proficiency English Language Learners from Students with Disabilities: Developing a Valid Classification System for all English Language Learners.” In addition to examining data from across the nation, Abedi and Bayley will conduct intensive field tests on a battery of assessments in four states: California, Michigan, Ohio, and Wisconsin. The ultimate goal of the research is to ensure that ELLs with and without disabilities are fairly assessed so that they can receive the educational services they need.
