Assessment Design: Best Practices for Inclusive Teaching and Learning

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Truly inclusive assessment provides all students with an equal opportunity to successfully demonstrate their ability to meet the learning outcomes. As the needs of learners become increasingly complex, it is essential that we move away from the common practice of reacting to individual learners’ needs by making assessment accommodations, and become more proactive in our approach to assessment. This interactive workshop encourages participants to consider inclusive assessment during curriculum design. 

The session will begin with an overview of the research and best practices literature, and exploration of a variety of inclusive assessment methods. After guiding participants through a few examples, a group activity will provide the opportunity to apply these concepts in a collaborative activity.  Participants will break into small groups to review a syllabus and propose inclusive assessments that align with the learning outcomes. To conclude, groups will be asked to share a synopsis of their group’s process, ideas and challenges for discussion.
