This keynote presentation will consider the role of assessment in facilitating or hindering language development in the multilingual classroom. Using writing assessment as an example, I will discuss how well-intended attempts to use assessment to encourage learning could actually be discouraging learning. I will then suggest strategies for incorporating language assessment in ways that encourage positive learning behaviour.
