Assessing EAL children

We want to do a thorough assessment of a sample of our EAL children to set a baseline. We can then measure the impact of strategies we use. Has anyone used an effective assessment for EAL children?

We use the cefr assessments to show baseline language skills

Thanks. Forgot to say, we’re a primary school so assessing age 4 up.

I work with EAL children in a primary school and we track progress using NASSEA steps. The Bell Foundation and Solihull Council have good, step-by-step tools too.
If you find a good baseline assessment tool, I’d be very interested. I’ve cobbled together my own to assess speaking, listening, reading and writing. This one Milton Keynes looks like the sort of thing I do.
