This livestreamed discussion, hosted by CUNY’s Futures Initiative, will focus on the social and political implications of the ways we test, grade, measure, rank, and assess. We will look at the ways our metrics can perpetuate inequality (race, gender, and class) and we will look at new, alternative methods of assessment that offer more fluid, equitable, and holistic ways of evaluating and supporting learning at every level. The Futures Initiative is delighted to welcome three renowned national figures on the topic of assessment: Anya Kamanetz, author of widely-acclaimed The Test and lead digital education reporter for NPR; Leah Gilliam, VP of Strategy and Innovation for Girls Who Code and former director of Mozilla’s Hive NYC Learning Network; and Bret Eynon, VP for Academic Affairs at LaGuardia Community College and a leader in the ePortfolio movement. ACERT invites the Hunter community to join us in viewing and discussing this livestream.
