The paper examines alternative assessment methods such as portfolios, multiple intelligence projects and rubrics used in bilingual science education classes of middle school students. The paper demonstrates the challenges of assessment in the science curriculum and bilingual education. The paper concludes that given the challenges created in both these educational contexts, there is a direct impetus for educators to consider the use of alternative assessments for the English as a second language (ESL) science curriculum.
