ASAP Releases New Equity Statement

The Adult Skills Assessment Project (ASAP) is addressing the bias that underlies traditional assessment development and validation. This bias does not recognize how oppressive systems like racism can impact test design and development. ASAP believes in accessible, justice-oriented, anti-racist, and culturally sustaining assessment practices. In alignment with these beliefs, ASAP has a new antiracist equity statement as an alterative design, development, and validation approach to assessment. The equity statement promotes practices that involve engaging diverse stakeholders in test design and development activities.
