Abstract
This chapter will discuss the integrated assessment of language and content (IALC), with particular reference to second language learning and use. We will address the central question of IALC: what does it mean to assess language and content in an integrated way? To put the question more specifically: what does it mean to assess how wording constructs meaning (and particularly content meaning) in text in context?
