Keynote

Dr. Karen Singer-Freeman

Director of Academic Planning and Assessment, University of North Carolina at Charlotte

Keynote | Equity in Assessment: Designing Assignments to Support Student Success
Assignments and assessments may be some of the most important components of our classes. Student work on assignments influences the extent to which they learn important concepts. The grades and feedback they receive influences both their success in a major and their feelings about the extent to which they belong in an institution or in a major. In this keynote address Dr. Singer-Freeman will discuss features of assignments and assessments that can interfere with students' ability to demonstrate proficiency. She will provide a range of simple ways that assignments and assessments can be improved to increase equity and support the success of all students.

Dr. Karen Singer-Freeman is the Director of Academic Planning and Assessment in the Office of Assessment and Accreditation at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte. Previously, Dr. Singer-Freeman served as an Associate Professor and Department Chair of Psychology at Purchase College, State University of New York where she received the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence in Teaching. Her research examines educational interventions that support the academic success of underserved students. Dr. Singer-Freeman has authored articles and book chapters on pedagogy and assessment and was named a Scientific Thinking and Integrative Reasoning Scholar by the Association of American Colleges and Universities.

The below archive includes information on keynote speakers, presentation materials, photos and videos, and importantly, downloadable PDFs of the many poster presentations for each year (with the exception of 2014).  During leap years, such as in 2020, the university does not host an Assessment Day; instead, the focus is on LEAP Day.  

As the archives attest, participation in Assessment Day has grown to be quite large there is a great deal of knowledge of assessment contained here!
