How to Articulate the Assessment Lifecycle Around Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Wednesday, October 25, 7:30 - 8:00 am  

Speakers: Isabelle Gonthier, PhD, ICE-CPP and Pamela Stemmer, PhD, PSI Services; Steve Dept, cApStAn; Jesse Lobbs, Ascend Learning

Location: Broadmoor F

There are many areas where diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) can play a critical role in the fairness of assessment: The scope of DE&I initiatives is not limited to a single timepoint of the assessment life cycle. For instance, bias in exam content could originate from many sources, such as the use of content-irrelevant language, cultural nuances, and regional differences. In this session, our presenters will walk through elements of the assessment life cycle to uncover opportunities to create greater equity in exam creation including:  

  1. Subject matter expert selection
  2. Item writing guidelines  
  3. Item review processes, including diverse focus groups  
  4. Language or localization requirements
  5. Post-administration analyses  

We will discuss components of DE&I and identify DE&I considerations throughout the exam development and delivery processes, including how to identify processes that may have unintentional inherent bias; and how to set up and implement processes that make assessments more inclusive and enhance their quality.
