Mar 9, 2022

5:00pm – 6:00pm CT

This session includes satirical videos exposing the blind spots around equity in testing and the performative efforts to address culture and bias, followed by a discussion on steps to take, including how to develop culturally relevant assessments. If testing prevails, can equity? Yes, let’s make it so.
