What is assessment for inclusion? Problematising inclusion, equity, and access in higher education assessment.

This year’s annual Centre for Research in Assessment and Digital Learning (CRADLE) symposium brings together researchers in the fields of higher education assessment, inclusion and social justice, to share ideas, research and practice, and problematise the concept of inclusive assessment.

The symposium aims to take stock of what has already been done (both practical and conceptual), identify areas of synergy for collaboration, and develop a research agenda which serves to improve the equity of assessment in higher education.

The CRADLE Symposium is proud to deliver the following line up of guest speakers:

  • Dr Jan McArthur, Senior Lecturer, Educational Research, Lancaster University – ‘Denouncing Binaries and Compromises: why philosophical perspectives are central to assessment and feedback research, scholarship and practices’ .
  • Prof Penny Jane Burke, Director, Centre of Excellence for Equity in Higher Education and Global Innovation Chair of Equity, The University of Newcastle – ‘Inclusive Assessment: Recognising Difference through Communities of Praxis’.
  • Leading researchers will talk about the big questions and ideas in inclusive assessment that have come from the symposium, in a panel session and open Q&A.
