Classroom Techniques for Equitable &
Culturally Responsive Assessment
September 30, 2020
11AM - 12noon ET
Assessment is about measuring learning for accountability and continuous improvement. However, it can also be a tool for promoting equity by developing and using culturally responsive assessment, if the goal is to use assessment results to improve learning for all students, including the underrepresented populations. The session will be guided by the following question: How do we value and insert students’ cultural identities and diversity in course design and assessment strategies? This interactive session will weave together presentation, discussion, and role play to share classroom techniques for implementing equitable assessment, from outcomes to assignment design and data analysis.
This session will help assessment professionals, instructional designers, and faculty:
• Interpret “equitable and culturally responsive” practices for classroom assessment
• Recognize how to craft, teach, and assess affective learning outcomes in the context of culturally responsive pedagogy
• Discover the role of multiple assessment methods in assessing learning for different student population
• Maximize learning by using varied assessment approaches for different cultural contexts and groups
• Use assessment data in ways that will help address inequities in meaningful ways in your classroom
