For six years, Saenkhum has been conducting research on placing multilingual writers--international visa students and US residents or citizens who are not native speakers of English--into college composition courses. Here offers one of her outcomes involving a student who was placed into English 101, first-year composition, when he first entered a US university, then decided to switch to her multilingual composition section in the second semester. Her topics include investigating multi-lingual writers' placement decision, why self-assessment is crucial to placement, academic advising and the placement of multilingual writers, and student agency and placement decisions.
