Coordinating multimodal social semiotics and an institutional perspective in studying assessment actions in mathematics classrooms.

What can a multimodal social semiotic perspective in coordination with an institutional perspective make visible? In this paper we describe how we coordinate these two perspectives in order to look at the same empirical material with different focuses. The research interest is assessment actions in mathematics classrooms, an interest that also affects research objectives and possible results. When coordinating the different perspectives, we have chosen, for the analytical frame-work, to develop the social semiotic meta-functions by adding a new, fourth, meta-function: the institutional. For the detailed analysis, we connect to these four meta-functions other compatible concepts to create an analytical framework.
