CAL is proud to partner with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction to develop the Multilingual Multimodal Science Inventory (M2-Si).
Development work draws upon theory and practices from formative assessment to construct activities which support learning for multilingual students in upper elementary science classes.
In 2022-23, of the over 1.4 million (1,442,736) students in North Carolina, a little over 140,00 (146,141) or 9%, were identified as English learners. Numbers of multilingual students in the state continue to increase, and NC typically ranks 8th or 9th in the country for the number of identified ELs.
This project funded by a U.S. Department of Education 2022 Competitive Grant for State Assessments awarded to the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.
