Multimodal Text Assessment Collection
Is multimodal assessment important to students?
Supporting multimodal literacy is an important aspect of education today as it encourages students to understand the ways media shapes their world. Most texts today, can be considered “multimodal texts,” as they combine modes such as visuals, audio, and alphabetic or linguistic text. It enhances engagement and affirms students’ identities as learners who can integrate their knowledge of multiple languages to communicate and learn a new language. Students learn to think critically about the purpose and function of each language they use in a multimodal text assessment.
