A playbill: Rethinking assessment in teacher education

Gina M. Borgioli, Anne Ociepka, Kristie Coker


In this article, we use a theatre metaphor, reflected in a prologue, three acts, and an epilogue, to retell and reflect on our journey of inquiring about, designing, enacting, and studying our enactment of non-traditional assessment practices in higher education. We are striving to better align our assessment practices with our beliefs and values about teaching and learning. We discuss how reforming our assessment practices affected issues of equity for our pre-service teachers, such as their participation, identity, power, and agency in our classes. We hope to inspire readers to reflect on how their assessment practices affect students’ learning and sense of agency.
