Equity-Centered Assessment: Resources & Practices

Join the conversation on equity in assessment

Equity Centered Landscape Survey

The Equity-Centered Assessment Landscape Survey was conducted to learn from higher education assessment practitioners about their current practices and perspectives regarding the intersection of equity, diversity, inclusion and assessment in order to advance and facilitate equity-centered assessment in higher education.

Survey Design Process and Partners

The landscape survey project is facilitated by a project team comprised of three parts: a leadership team, a survey design and analysis team, and project partners. This structure is designed to model equity-centered practices by intentionally engaging culturally diverse stakeholders. The leadership team recognizes the work that has happened in these spaces for years and seeks to shine a light on these efforts while guiding the initiative with our project partners and design and analysis team.
