To achieve equity in higher education, we must understand the circumstances under which assessment choices contribute to the perpetuation of equity gaps. Self-reflective writing is a culturally responsive form of assessment that supports student wellness, engagement, and awareness of learning. As we shift to online assessment of student learning, self-reflective writing can be used to document and deepen learning. In this webinar we will summarize research on the value of self-reflective writing, explain why it is considered to be a form of culturally responsive assessment, and provide concrete examples of ways traditional assessments of student learning can be modified into self-reflective assignments.
