Visiting Washington, D.C.
Session Type: Invited Speaker Session
In this symposium, we will provide forward-looking views on issues and challenges related to increasing fairness and equity in assessing diverse populations in the 21st Century. Specifically, the presenters will provide an overview of possible future practices associated with testing multiple populations in the 21st century from a range of methodological standpoints. A central goal is to provide ways to carefully think through the implications of our analyses and decisions made from data in support of sound educational decision-making and data interpretation.
