This virtual workshop focuses on assessment at the undergraduate course level. Given the variety of backgrounds, resources, experiences, capabilities, knowledge, and identities students bring into our classrooms, how do we ensure we assess their learning and development from the course itself and “allow for all students to show and demonstrate what they understand.” (whilst also managing our own finite time and energy)? We will work through these questions in an interactive workshop emerging out of a CTL Fellowship on equitable and effective assessment which included interviews with 12 faculty members. There are instructors at Kent State teaching classes ranging in size from 5 to 200, at different campuses, associate professors, adjuncts, assistant professors, full professors, lecturers, across the arts, humanities, sciences, and social sciences who are already engaging in thoughtful reflection and practice in this area. In the workshop we will draw upon their experiences and recommendations alongside recent research in order to see what practical, realistic steps we can all implement toward more equitable and effective assessment in our classes.
