General Session Keynote: The other side of assessment: Humanizing the Multilingual Learner Experience

In this keynote, we demystify assessment for multilingual learners and their educators by going beyond high-stakes scores to unearth rich and humanizing classroom-level data.  In viewing assessment as a participatory process, we embrace a broader perspective that encompasses the interests, languages, cultures, identities, and experiences of students.  Highlighting the multilingual experience, we discuss principles of effective assessment to support student growth, critical stance, agency, and autonomy.  Moving away from traditional approaches, we present the other side of assessment – one that fosters interaction, dialogue, interdependence, community building, and space for centering multiple voices.
