Democracy and Assessment: Building A Better Future Panel Discussion at the IUPUI Assessment Institute Virtual Conference 2021

This session sponsored by the National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment provides space for assessment practitioners to explore the relationship between assessment and democracy while engaging in dialogue on the history of assessment and consider alternative assessment conceptions to assessing democratically-related learning outcomes beyond civic engagement. Building upon the work begun in a four-part webinar series exploring democracy and assessment, re-imagining democratically focused learning outcomes, and re-thinking means to assess those outcomes, this session provides an update and entry point to the conversation on how assessment can proactively support a Democratic society.
