Assessment, if not done designed and implemented with our students’ identities in mind, will privilege certain evidence of student learning while marginalizing others. Regardless of whether assessments are deemed culturally responsive or not, every assessment should relate to the lived experiences, points of view, and cultural contexts of our students. This means assessments should invite diverse and multiple means of demonstrating knowledge, skills, and understanding.
