Acculturation Quickscreen- Manuel, Form & Strategies

Acculturation Quickscreen- Manuel, Form & Strategies | SEL Assessment and Monitoring | Scoop.it
Using the AQS III will help school personnel better meet the needs of diverse students. Although acculturation is a natural process of adaptation to a new cultural and social environment, there are various side effects to the process that can be stressful for the adapting student, sometimes called “culture shock.” Culture shock is a confounding factor for students learning English as an additional language or learning Standard English within an academic environment. Culture shock is also a factor in the school achievement of students from marginalized communities. Since students acculturate to new environments at different rates it is often difficult to tell who is still experiencing culture shock and who is not. The AQS III measures the level and rate of acculturation and leads directly to strategies to address culture shock. The AQS III aids in providing appropriate assistance to the student and preventing inaccurate or inappropriate placement or referral to special services. Students who are in the process of adapting to a new culture and social environment may behave in a manner that is similar to students with a learning or behavior disability or other inhibiting factor. The AQS III can be used to monitor the rate of acculturation for your diverse students. Students from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds will vary in their rate and level of acculturation to public school culture, but all are affected by various factors. Most diverse students will acculturate gradually over several years and at a steady rate relative to length of time, type and amount of instruction, level of assistance with transition, and other factors measured on the AQS III. Those who do not show change year-to-year may have some unidentified difficulty or be having some other destabilizing stressful experience. These difficulties may be addressed through various strategies within the instructional program. The AQS III helps highlight and identify difficulties that may be addressed by readiness, prevention or instructional intervention approaches. The AQS III can be used as part of any screening and progress monitoring process used in problem solving, such as response to intervention (RTI) or response to instruction and intervention (RTII) programs.

Sociocultural Checklist- Manual & Form

Sociocultural Checklist- Manual & Form | SEL Assessment and Monitoring | Scoop.it
The SCII provides you with a brief profile of your student of concern in five sociocultural areas: acculturation, cognitive learning style, culture & language, experiential background, and sociolinguistic development. This needs based checklist addresses the standard exclusionary clause for referrals. That is, if you can show that the student's home background, socioeconomic status, past education experiences, are the primary cause of the child's learning and behavior problems, if you can account for all of his or her problems by evidence of these factors and not something else, then the referral should be to other services, not special education. 

It is possible for a student to have all of these sociocultural factors and have some innate, organic, significant disability as well. Showing high need in these five factors does not automatically exclude referral, but you have to account for them as contributing factors. Whether or not the student has a disability of some sort, documentation of the sociocultural profile is necessary for planning intervention, program decision-making, and establishing your foundation and rationale for a referral to further evaluation. 

The SCII assists you in identifying and prioritizing student needs. The SCII provides a useful piece of supplemental assessment information when students from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds enroll in your school district. It should be part of the screening routinely done to make instructional decisions during the 'prereferral’ or instructional intervention period, instructional intervention process or for 'prevention/intervention' instructional activities. You can use it to plan the selection of specific intensive learning and behavior interventions within RTI for culturally/linguistically diverse students rather than referring them to a full, individualized evaluation and staffi

Resilency Checklist - Manual & Form

Resilency Checklist - Manual & Form | SEL Assessment and Monitoring | Scoop.it
The second edition of the Resiliency Checklist (RCII) is a screening tool for educators in American and Canadian public schools to identify and profile resiliency factors in learners from a culturally or linguistically diverse background. The RCII profiles five specific strength or resiliency areas: acculturation, cognitive learning style, culture & language, experience background, and sociolinguistic development. 

The Resiliency Checklist is primarily designed for use in classrooms with a strength-based approach or in educational programs that use strength-based instructional planning or prevention program models.1 We also recommend that you use the RCII as part of early childhood needs identification procedures and as part of the initial information gathering and instructional planning stages that should occur for all newcomers to a school system. You use the RCII to generate a prioritized list of strength areas for facilitating instruction for diverse learners. You or teams of education personnel who are familiar with the student’s background and classroom behavior score the RCII.
Steve Whitmore's insight:
This is a great tool for assessing Resilency for those who are learning English as a second language.  This comes from a strength based approach.
