Cummins' Iceberg Model of Language Interdependence The Language Minority Assessment Project is a Lesley University Initiative in collaboration with the Lowell Public Schools and funded with a grant from the US Department of Education.

The primary focus of this action research project is on the development of a process to explore the influence of linguistic and cultural factors in classroom reading assessment for grades one and two. The languages selected for this project are Khmer, Portuguese and Spanish, because these are the three most spoken languages by the students in the Lowell Public Schools in Massachusetts.
