Analyze the how and why of your participant’s SOLOM results.
How (well) does the SOLOM measure a learner’s use of: syntax, semantics, morphology, phonology, language use/usage? Which features of the bilingual EL student’s oral language prompted the rater to place him/her at each level in each domain? Does the overall rating reflect the bilingual EL student’s abilities in the larger academic context? How well do ratings in the individual language ability areas reflect the overall assessment?
What questions did the SOLOM answer for you as a teacher? Were any areas left unaddressed?
