This project prepared a set of assessment and intervention tools, with about 15 cognitive and linguistic assessment tasks, targeting immigrant students from Portugal. Assessment tools are being assessed for the Portuguese school immigrant population and will, after validation, be placed in an electronic repository of instruments at the service of the national education system. Deficient school practices and the lack of research in the area of processes and cognitive processing in Second Language is the basis of this investigation, as well as the increasing presence of migrant groups and groups with refugee status. This research project has the current organization: (1) application of tests for validation in a migrant population (including refugee population); (2) data analysis and constitution of cognitive and linguistic profiles of groups of linguistic minorities; (3) analysis of teachers' representations vis-à-vis the student immigrant population; (4) preparing a Whatsapp for immigrant and foreign population: assisted learning in European Portuguese; (5) construction of the instrument repository on a web platform (6).
