Does the presence of multimodalities confound comprehension of text in testing situations, especially for multilingual learners? In this blog, we explore three of many ways multimodalities can positively impact classroom assessment for multilingual learners.
"Schools confuse the assessment of general linguistic proficiency, which is best manifested in bilinguals while translanguaging, with the testing of proficiency in a named language, which insists on inhibiting translanguaging."

In addition to students' own literacy practices, these storytelling activities can also be key teaching opportunities for EL students because they use multimedia, therefore providing extra scaffolding through images, audio, and video.
