Applications Due: Case Studies in Equity in Assessment

Event Type
Jan 31, 2019   All Day

In order for assessment to meet the goals of improving student learning and authentically documenting what all students know and can do, an equitable approach to assessment is needed. To this end, NILOA launched its 29th Occasional Paper in 2017 that explores the question “how consequential can assessment be to learning when assessment approaches may not be inclusive of diverse learners?” NILOA and the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS) recognize that there are practices occurring within institutions of higher education that address issues of equity in relation to assessment. What is lacking is awareness of the various practices, their effectiveness, process elements, and the impact of equitable assessment efforts on diverse student populations and their learning. If your institution is engaged in equitable assessment efforts and you are interested in sharing your processes and practices through a case study or other outlet, review the Call for Case Study Participants and please complete the application by January 15, 2019.
