Decolonising Assessment toolkit – Team Earth

This toolkit presents three approaches to decolonising assessment. In ‘opening the space to talk’, the authors use bell hooks’ belief that ‘the professor must genuinely value everyone’s presence’ before planning assessment. In ‘framing and context’, the authors highlight how we need to pay attention to how we give formative assessment and feedback. In ‘access and inclusion’, several statements are provided that remind us of ways to remain critically aware of factors that can lead to exclusion.
