Indigenous students in the United States and U.S.-affiliated Pacific Region schools have varying degrees of access to culturally responsive, sustaining, and revitalizing education. Academic assessments that intend to capture what these students know and can do, are not always designed in ways that allow students to do so nor are they designed to support educators in recognizing student excellence when they see it. This infographic summarizes six salient features of assessments that are discussed in key peer-reviewed articles on culturally responsive assessment for Indigenous students. The considerations can be used as a jumping-off point for conversations and decision making concerning assessments, in particular by teachers, education leaders, and assessment developers.
