Description

The increase of racial, ethnic, linguistic, and cultural diversity and awareness in U.S. and other western nations insists that social science researchers and evaluators engage culturally responsive approaches in their work.

This edited volume explores questions, issues, theories, and practices in culturally responsive evaluation and assessment. The scholars and practitioners who have contributed chapters belong to the Center for Culturally Responsive Evaluation and Assessment (CREA).

CREA designs and conducts evaluations and assessments that embody cognitive, cultural, and interdisciplinary diversity.

WestEd’s Sharon Nelson-Barber contributed to a key chapter, “Partnering with Pacific Communities to Ground Evaluation in Local Culture and Context: Promises and Challenges.”
