Summer 2019 Intersection Theme: Equity in Assessment, Part 1
Recently, conversations have arisen on a national level around the diversity of today’s college students, and in particular how assessment of student learning needs to be reflective of and responsive to the needs of our diverse students. This Summer 2019 edition of AALHE’s Intersection will continue the dialogue on equity and diversity in assessment that will start at the June 2019 AALHE conference and lead up to the June 2020 conference. We are looking to present our readers with examples of successful strategies for increasing equity in assessment, including, but not limited to, implementation of culturally responsive assessment practices, means for increasing cultural competence in assessment, and strategies for discussing equity in assessment with campus assessment partners/stakeholders. Please consider sharing your successful assessment processes to assist your AALHE colleagues in this important endeavor.
