NILOA Equity in Assessment Improving the quality of the student academic experience must drive assessment. To authentically document what our diverse students know and can do, an equitable and culturally responsive approach to assessment is needed. To begin the conversation on the relationship between equity and assessment, NILOA launched its 29th Occasional Paper (PDF) in 2017 that explores the question "how consequential can assessment be to learning when assessment approaches may not be inclusive of diverse learners?"
The annual Assessment Expo provides an opportunity for faculty and staff to showcase the good assessment work they are doing and to learn about assessment practices across campus.
Recordings from the 2021 Assessment Institute are now available. Areas addressed include diversity, equity and inclusion, community engagement, faculty development, STEM education, learning improvement, student partnership and engagement in assessment, student affairs programs and services, high-impact practices (HIPs), and many more.
