This research project examined how the Sociocultural Checklist ((MDE)) can help make nondiscriminatory decisions to identify Limited English Proficient (LEP) students for special education. The researcher examined the use of the Sociocultural Checklist as an information gathering tool and explored how this tool can assist in making nondiscriminatory decisions during the special education referral process when identifying LEP students for special education. This study may provide a working model for the use of the Sociocultural Checklist and can assist in making nondiscriminatory decisions with regard to identifying LEP students for special education. The researcher investigated what types of information this tool may provide and described the discussion of selecting assessment and evaluation materials that are nondiscriminatory on a racial or cultural basis to attain assessment data that is based on nonbiased information.
