Your Democracy & Assessment—Resources

As your community of practice, AEFIS Academy launched a four-part series designed to explore and unpack the relationship between Democracy and Assessment. Throughout this series, a variety of thought leaders came together in conversation around what the current relationship between democracy and assessment entails, what the relationship should or could be, and what the role of assessment might be moving forward to support a productive democracy.

“What (if any) is the role of assessment in evaluating how campuses address these basic aspects of democracy? – Steve Wygant
