Ethical Assessment: The Conversation that Has to Happen
What if there were a Hippocratic Oath for assessment? Do no harm. And what if it went even further? Do good. This webinar featuring Gary Chapin of Educating for Good, interrogates our assumptions around assessment and offers a frame for Ethical Assessment that is truthful, kind, aligned to the student, and, ultimately, for good. Gary has worked in performance assessment for the past seven years with the Center for Collaborative Education and the Assessment for Learning Project. We’ll be talking about four general principles of an ethical assessment system, and also ask, “What does it look like on the ground?” Assessment that is ethical tells a story. It doesn’t merely provide a data point. How can we tell stories that best serve students?
