Leaning into Culturally-grounded Anti-bias Child Assessment (Early Childhood Investigations)
Children should be assessed in the context of their daily routines and activities as they engage with familiar materials through an asset frame. Unfortunately, there is evidence that children of color, especially Black children, are often assessed as less cognitively, linguistically, and socially astute than their peers.

This means interrogating the content, purpose, and goals of the assessments, and the role of adults’ biases, behaviors, and the learning environment.
