Rating
0.0 stars

As educators, we want all of our students to succeed, and the Inclusive Scorecard I provides a user-friendly tool to help achieve that goal. This 11-point checklist helps you identify design issues that unintentionally hamper the learning of disadvantaged students and/or students of color. Designed for higher education courses, the Scorecard draws from the venerable instructional-design practice of learner analysis. The Scorecard provides clear direction for creating a welcoming learning environment in which every student has an equitable opportunity to succeed. Designed for online courses, most of the Scorecard principles also apply to materials that faculty use in face-to-face classrooms.
