An Introduction to Equity-focused Assessment
How do we make decisions about our programs and courses? What information do we use to make these decisions? What assumptions do we make about that information and the ways that information is collected? In this interactive synchronous workshop we will discuss how and why assessment is an important element of equity-minded work. In examining typical routines of assessment, we will discuss a range of issues from data collection to interpretation and reporting, with an eye towards building equity-minded assessment practices in our programs and courses. This session will be helpful for both new and seasoned instructors, and particularly helpful for instructors tasked with curriculum review.
