Assessment in Intercultural Language Learning
Scarino, Angela
Babel, v43 n1 p20-22, 38-39 Nov 2008
This paper provides background to considering how to assess intercultural language learning. It describes why traditional views of assessment are not sufficient. Essentially, assessing intercultural language learning requires assessment of both students' performance of communication in the target language and how they understand and explain the intercultural (that is, the movement between two languages and cultures) to themselves. A set of features of assessment of students' intercultural capability is included.
