Equity-Driven, High Achievement Assessment of Student Learning and Development provides a framework and accompanying questions to consider as you refine your outcomes-based assessment process into one that is equity driven. Equity driven infers that leaders have evidence to inform choices so all students can experience high achievement in their learning and development outcomes. The invitation is for leaders to critique institutional performance indicators, analysis, and decision-making processes that inform the selection of those performance indicators, and align resources accordingly to ensure high achievement for all students.

Praise for Equity-Driven, High Achievement Assessment of Student Learning and Development

"As higher education leaders and educators, if we are truly committed to applying an equity lens to the student experience, our highest value must be ensuring high achievement for every student. This book provides an important framework for critiquing and aligning student success–focused assessment processes, practices, values, and assumptions toward a clearer focus on equity. The book includes a wealth of diverse resources that can be adapted toward enhancing campus assessments to better identify achievement gaps and improve learning outcomes for all students." —Lori S. White, President, DePauw University

"This book is an invitation to understand and improve our commitment toward equity-driven outcomes without reducing the ever important high achievement expectations for all students. A must-read for those ready for the future of outcomes assessment across all areas of education. From page 1 it is bursting with implementable tools to further measure learning and development. Adding this great reference to my library!" —Pamelyn Klepal Shefman, Executive Director, Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Research, Alvin Community College

"Bresciani Ludvik masterfully integrates assessment, learning science, and equity, providing a roadmap for both new and experienced assessors to transform traditional assessment processes into ones that are equity driven and promote high achievement. The framework is coupled with concrete examples offered by her colleagues that bring the concepts she discusses to life. This book is a must-read for anyone committed to equitable outcomes for students." —Gavin Henning, Professor of Higher Education, New England College
