Assessment - Inclusive Pedagogy Toolkit | Center for New Designs in Learning and Scholarship, Georgetown University
This is just one component of CNDLS’s Inclusive Pedagogy Toolkit focused on the following:
- Being explicit about your assessment criteria and how they relate to learning goals, and sharing successful examples.
- Thinking beyond tests and papers; giving students multiple ways and repeated opportunities to reflect upon and demonstrate their learning and growth.
- Creating opportunities for students to make their learning visible to the full learning community to help build solidarity as opposed to competition around assessment.
- Creating low-stakes opportunities for students to practice before they are asked to perform.

- Provide choice, creativity, flexibility for assignments
- Respect different “ways of knowing”
- Make expectations clear to students
- Don’t reward or penalize perspectives or opinions
- Grade anonymously
- Grade one question at a time rather than one student at time
- Provide flexibility in grading policies
