Eval Cafe: Culturally Specific Assessment as a Means to Address Measurement Disjuncture
January 11, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm
David Sul is a psychometrician and evaluator who specializes in culturally specific assessment in support of indigenous cultural and linguistic revitalization initiatives. Sul is a proponent of the development of performance-based assessments using item response theory (IRT) from indigenous perspectives. His unique approach to critical measurement considers assessment development as a political act that can support indigenous autonomy and self-determination. Sul will describe his current research on the development of culturally specific assessments within indigenous communities in Ontario and Hawaiʻi.
After a presentation, there will be time for open discussion.
