Academic Discussions – An Equitable Assessment?

How can academic discussions support an equitable assessment practice?

Academic Discussions are rich learning experiences that provide insight into learners’ ideas, their connections, and their underlying reasoning. With that said, we must remember that equitable assessments must provide every learners the opportunity to demonstrate what they know and can do. And unfortunately, academic discussions can omit the voices of some students.

Why Academic Discussion Can Be Inequitable

Why are some students challenged to fully participate in academic discussion?

Inclusive, academic discussions are not without challenges, such as competing cultural norms and the dynamic nature of discussion. Yet, it is the richness of learning and the promise of gaining insight into learners’ thinking that compels us to continue to engage our learners in this practice as equitably as possible.
