Webinar Addresses How We Can Assess Multilingual Learners for Success

Updated: May 12


As the number of multilingual learners in educational contexts in both the US and abroad increases, a key question for educational stakeholders is how best to assess these learners who bring multiple linguistic repertoires to the classroom in ways that contribute to their academic success.


In this symposium hosted by the Center for Applied Linguistics, panelists will explore what a multilingual orientation to language assessment might look like. Speakers explore what multilingualism is and how it impacts on assessment—including approaches to large scale assessment in both the United States and overseas, how educators and teachers support their multilingual learners using assessment, and which contexts are well-suited for the introduction of multilingual approaches to assessment.
