Should state tests be given in other languages for ESL students?

  • Yes why wouldn't we

    They are in ESL for a reason, if they don't understand English well, what makes you think it'll be a good idea to give them a state test in a language they barely know. I s a y y e s o f c o u r s e !

  • Yes they should

    The test is testing their ability to do the subject, not the ability to read English. The student will get better grades if they understood the questions. There might be some students out there who are forced to move or to learn a new language, it wouldn't be fair for them.

  • Yes yes yes

    Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes

  • Yes they should

    Because this way the student can show how smart they are in a certain subject and not fail because they can read the language of English and he should be able to show all he can do. Unless he is being tested on reading English then the students should get the test in their own language.

  • Yes, because English test can make low score than their talent.

    Given in other language can make talented people get low score than their own talent. That tests isn't testing English, just their talent, but English is basal to who want live in America. If they don't know about English, it is damage to their life in America too. Therefore America have to give English test to ESL students but also make other test of other subjects can test by their language.

  • We should all be able to demonstrate our full knowledge.

    ESL students might not be able to express themselves fully in English, and therefore assumed to know less than they actually do. Maybe ESL students can take an English test to show how well they can communicate in English, but they should be allowed to do the state tests in the language they are most familiar with.

  • This is important

    My cousin was born in America but has dual citizenship in Jordan, when she was younger, she went to Jordan and forgot all of her English. By the time she came home, she knew very little. Why should an AMERICAN CITIZEN have to struggle in school to learn her native language? "No, this is America" ok but she's from America, she just forgot English at a very young age. I think she should be able to take a test in her first language.

  • Understanding the tests if you speak English is hard enough

    Test are hard enough if you know the language now imagine you cant read or speak the language but a few words here and there then they throw a test at you completely in a foreign language you would struggle with it that's why tests should be given in there first language vs. English just because they're in the United States. What if they're trying to learn? After all it is harder learning another language when you're older

  • We are in america

    No, state tests should not be in any other languages than english, unless the student has a hearing disability or they have a mental disability that only lets their brain capacity retain one languages which might not be english. When people come to America they should bring three things, knowing the U.S’s policies and laws, knowing the english language, and to amend our rules and constitution, not to find loopholes or make excuses.
