The College of Computing and Informatics (CCI) and the Center for Teaching and Learning at the University of North Carolina Charlotte collaborated in an innovative use of the campus learning management software (LMS). By leveraging the LMS, a flexible method was created to gather and report aggregate student learning outcomes data at the program level for the CCI's undergraduate degree programs. This approach has enabled the CCI to become more efficient in its assessment process, to expand its capacity for timely formative assessment, and to employ a culturally responsive assessment model. This approach is being explored for expansion across the university to streamline and scale the assessment procedures. This symposium will present an overview of the theoretical framework of culturally responsive assessment practice, discuss the challenges and opportunities faced in adoption of an LMS system for assessment, and demonstrate key adaptations that facilitate the scalability of culturally relevant assessment practice. The presenters will guide participants through discussion with key questions to provoke thoughtful reflection of how institutions can employ equitable assessment, adopt efficient approaches that are grounded in data analytics to further develop assessment capacity that can be scaled for large institutions.
