Equity in Assessments: Ingredients for a Holistic Grading Rubric


It is evidenced that we all have diverse ways of learning therefore, we can build diverse grading and assessments to align with the how we learn. In this presentation, we will focus on project-based learning, social and emotional learning and holistic grading assessments. Holistic grading allows the student to take the driver’s seat in asserting and assessing their learning with the instructor. The rubric holds the ingredients that accounts for the whole person/people (head, hands and heart) in the grading criteria. This approach redistributes the authority of the entire grading process – holding students accountable for their learning and offers equity in the assessment process. In this interactive presentation, participants will be able to sketch out a holistic learning rubric.

Session Outcomes:

  • Learn about holistic learning the connects to culturally relevant pedagogy.
