This project investigates approaches to multilingual assessment in the secondary educational context in order to address varied teaching and learning needs of bi/multilingual students from immigrant and refugee backgrounds enrolled in Ontario schools. Reflecting the complex, dynamic language practices of bi/multilingual speakers and communities, this approach recognizes the rich linguistic resources of bi/multilingual students, providing them with an opportunity to demonstrate their academic knowledge and literacy skills using the full range of their linguistic repertoire.
