Transforming Assessment Practice Through the Lens of Democratic Engagement
October 21, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm
Before you settle into the Assessment Institute, you are invited to join us in Indianapolis for a theory-driven pre-conference about the work of assessment and the values of community engagement.
TRANSFORMING ASSESSMENT PRACTICE THROUGH THE LENS OF DEMOCRATIC ENGAGEMENT – Is your assessment practice value-laden, value-free or value-neutral? What role do your own value commitments play when you design learning assessments or program evaluation metrics? What impact do values have on outcomes? This session introduces an emerging framework, Democratically Engaged Assessment (DEA) that attends to these questions. DEA reimagines assessment as a cultural practice through which we can transform our universities, our communities, and ourselves. Participants will use the model to surface values inherent in our assessments and explore implications.
Presented by: Mary F. Price, IUPUI; Joe Bandy; Vanderbilt University; Patti H. Clayton, Independent Consultant; Sylvia Gale, University of Richmond; and Julia Metzker, Stetson University.
