This event was inspired by TAFSIG (Testing, Assessment and Feedback SIG) and EAP4SJ recent collaboration with Dr Jan McArthur when we talked about higher education assessment for social justice, and particularly the role of values of trust, honesty, responsibility, forgiveness, and responsiveness (McArthur, 2020).
In this world café event, we invited you to join us in this discussion, with the focus on EAP assessment in terms of the current state of the affairs, as well as the ways forward for our field in embracing assessment for social justice. Those discussions were then followed by a short Q&A with Dr McArthur, when participants had an opportunity to ask questions about her work on assessment for social justice.
