AntiRacist Assessment Task Force Members at CWPA: “WPA-GO Anti-Racist Assessment Workshop”

Chair Amanda Presswood and members Sara Lovett and Ashleigh Petts will facilitate an interactive workshop at CWPA. They will be reviewing writing program artifacts (syllabi, outcomes, prompts, etc.) and collectively constructing a rubric for creating anti-racist materials. The purpose of this session is for instructors and administrators to become aware of the role of race in writing assessment and to begin to develop practical anti-racist competencies.

In this session, the facilitators invite participants to try out anti-racist assessment practices in a hands-on environment. Building on recent literature on anti-racist assessment (see: Asao Inoue and others), we will be reviewing writing program artifacts (syllabi, outcomes, prompts, etc.) in the context of existing practices and collectively constructing a new rubric for creating anti-racist materials. The purpose of this session is for instructors and administrators in our overwhelmingly white profession to become aware of the role of race in writing assessment and to begin to develop practical anti-racist competencies to better serve increasingly diverse student populations.

Time and Place: TBD (Check the conference schedule, when it is released.)
