In Support of Equitable Student Learning Experiences, Starting with Assessments
Beyond shuttering campuses, the pandemic disrupted student access to vital nonacademic resources such as housing and counselling services, as well as the technology they depended on to complete their studies. Concerns over student equity and access are once again firmly in the spotlight, and with them, calls to reevaluate the approach to summative assessments. As we begin to settle into the next normal, institutions and educators are reimagining how they conduct assessments to provide more equitable alternatives to traditional high-stakes assessments. This session will share insights on how administrators can best support educators to approach equitable assessments in a way that improves learning opportunities and supports student success. It will share strategies and technology to consider, as well as the critical role that collaboration between institutions and faculty can play in these efforts.
