Assessment is seen as critical in higher ed and in community engagement/service-learning, but little research explores how to incorporate a social justice framework into assessment practices. Given the diversity of our students and their experiences, how can we honor the many ways they learn and convey knowledge? How do we incorporate community partner voice into our assessment practices? In this Community Conversation, we hope to explore the tensions we experience in assessing in an inclusive manner. Presenters will share tools and resources and guide the group discussion. The purpose of this session is to explore assessment from a critical lens and to share ideas and resources. The objectives are for participants to examine their assessment practices and work together to share resources that could guide us toward inclusive assessment. The partners represented in the session are from UC Berkeley’s Public Service Center and Stanford University’s Haas Center for Public Service. This session builds from questions generated by two of the presenters when attending a Civic Center Convening at Cornell, participating in the Group on Evaluation, Assessment & Research. We hope the impact is we develop a network of people exploring this topic and sharing resources.
