Description: Educational equity embodies the belief that achievement among all students will occur only when all students receive opportunities that they perceive as meaningful and that allow them to draw on their social and cultural literacies to achieve academic success. Moreover, cultural competence and culturally responsive habits of thinking are bundled within good teaching and assessment practices.

This webinar will present research that views learning from a socio-cultural perspective to explain how students’ individual, social, and cultural experiences shape the ways in which each individual views the world. This webinar will introduce concepts of culturally relevant and responsive pedagogy, discuss the implications of cultural responsiveness for assessment at the state, district, school, and classroom levels, and share an example of how culturally responsive assessment practice is being used to honor and sustain the social, cultural and linguistic backgrounds of Native Hawaiian students.

Audience: The primary audience for this series of webinars is state and local education research and assessment directors. The webinars will also target state and local curriculum and instruction leaders, school principals, and education stakeholders who are interested in culturally responsive assessment.

Speakers: Roger Fiedler, McREL International
