Accommodations for English Learners Bibliography: Introduction

The Accommodations for English Learners Bibliography allows users to search a compilation of empirical research studies on the effects of various testing accommodations for students who are English Learners.

You can perform a basic search of the bibliography for specific accommodation research studies by typing in keywords related to the accommodation, test content area, or student age. Brief summaries of each study are provided, and include information on the accommodation, participants, dependent variable, and major findings of the study.

For more information on how the studies where chosen for this bibliography, see Method for Identifying EL Accommodation Studies.

You can perform an advanced search of the bibliography using drop down menus in categories such as journal name, research type, sample size, intended audience, research design, etc. There are also check box menus in categories such as percent of sample who are English Learners, data analysis techniques performed, and research purpose.

This database was first organized and developed by staff from the National Center on Educational Outcomes working collaboratively with staff from the Improving Instruction project (Award #T365Z160115 from the Office of English Language Acquisition, U.S. Department of Education).
