~Make Assessment and Evaluation Work for Diversity, Equity and Inclusive Excellence:

It Works If You Work It!~

Let’s unleash the illuminative powers of assessment and evaluation as rich natural resources for enacting, as well as documenting progress, on our success visions. Doing so requires responsive uses of assessment AS and FOR learning and not simply postmortems OF learning. They emerge as generative resources for relevant knowledge creation and continuous development towards excellence, in addition to conventional accountability compliance documentation.They become vehicles that inform and improve as well as prove.

In what ways and to what extent are your curricular, cocurricular and instructional processes breathing life into success visions for all students? How do you know your accomplishments and the extent to which your evaluative judgments resonate with the lived realities of the persons that you assess—experiential validity?

To fully embrace this agenda, educators must become boundary-spanning excellence facilitators who use diversity-grounded, equity-minded assessment/evaluation resources with a double-sided mirror. Let’s get busy helping our students and our colleagues bring forward their best selves in full voice to do their best learning, best engaging and best work for the greater good. It works if we work it!
