Reading and assessing the writing of multilingual students can be a unique challenge for college faculty. This guide offers strategies for how to read, assess, and provide feedback on the work of multilingual student writers, and it contextualizes these strategies in current Second Language Studies research. Sections of the guide address contexts of multilingual writing, common concerns about multilingual writers, and methods for supporting writers and for addressing errors.
