Valencia's Assessment Coordinating Committee (ACC)
The Assessment Coordinating Committee (ACC) has committed to embedding equity into assessment praxis as encouraged by National Institute for Learning Outcomes Assessment in A New Decade for Assessment. The committee has mapped Valencia’s Learning Outcomes Assessment Model to the elements of the equity-minded approach outlines by NILOA and will on an on-going basis check procedures against the characteristics of equity-minded assessment, making necessary and appropriate changes as needed to ensure equity is embedded in all things assessment.
