Educationalists claim that the goal of assessment is to demonstrate learners' achievement and, in this way, guide them in their learning journey. For students, on the other hand, assessment often feels like a trial of whether or not they are smart, talented or even suitable for a profession they have chosen. Designing proper assessment becomes even more challenging if we consider the diversity of our student population.
Therefore, in this workshop, we will discuss some ideas about how we, lecturers, and other professionals, can ensure all students have the possibility to show what they know while still meeting the learning outcomes of the course. Although it is not possible to meet each student’s needs, there are possible adaptations we can make that will benefit a greater group.
At the end of the session, participants will have a list of tricks and tips they could try to apply to their courses to make their assessments, both formative and summative, more inclusive.
