  1. Very interesting webinar. Dynamic assessment is a research interest of mine, and I am hoping that someday this won’t be considered an alternative assessment but one that is widely accepted as the only way to motivate bias in language – especially students who come from diverse linguistic backgrounds.

    1. Very interesting webinar. I appreciated the slide for Dynamic Assessment. Dynamic assessment is a very strong research interest of mine, and I am hoping that someday this won’t be considered an alternative assessment but one that is widely accepted as the only way to mitigate bias in language – especially students who come from diverse linguistic backgrounds.
