Keynote Lecture and Q&A: “What Does It Mean To Do Antiracist Classroom Assessment As Social Justice?” Online

This talk discusses what it means to assess and evaluate college student writing so that teachers can develop antiracist practices. It focuses not on people behaving badly or racist, but rather on the historical and structural ways that most academics judge and read language; teachers’ ways of assessing language; disciplines’ logics and ways with words; and most professions’ expectations of language use. It pays particular attention to the historical practice of grading in universities, White supremacy culture in the academy and literacy classrooms. Inoue urges for an antiracist orientation toward our teaching and assessing, providing several ways to begin. 

Asao B. Inoue is a professor and the associate dean for Academic Affairs, Equity, and Inclusion in the College of Integrative Sciences and Arts at Arizona State University. His research focuses on antiracist and social justice theory and practices in writing assessments.
