So much more than you wanted to know about that one session on culturally relevant assessment

Just wish assessment acknowledged roles race/class/etc play in student learning outcomes. Not being able to pay for books affects learning.

  1. My favorite topics! Thanks for the notes and Zotero folder, also. We don’t get to travel much at all right now, and you’re making it easier to participate vicariously :) I’m going to Sloan next month, and maybe it’s an occasion to consider blogging again, you’re inspiring!

  2. I had a similar realization that there are many cultural blindspots in library research and assessment methodologies from a presentation by some OMSI evaluators at the Oregon Program Evaluation Network meeting last year. They talked about the continuum of cultural competency and how no one really reaches the end of that. It made me think that our methodologies need to be more robust to capture the true experiences of our patrons in libraries and how we often choose to gather evidence that is easiest rather than putting the extra effort to gather evidence that is inclusive and diverse.
