Futurelab: Assessment Literature Review and Social Justice

Futurelab has just published its latest Assessment Literature Review, commissioned from outstanding academic researchers to offer a route map through the vast body of research into education and technology with a view to social justice.

Social justice refers to the concept of a society affording individuals’ and groups’ fair treatment and an impartial share of the benefits of that society. It is crucial in relation to children and young people who have little control over their environment or circumstances, and have little say over much of what happens to them in schools in the name of testing and assessment.

If we want to create an education system that fully assesses all learners, then we need to support any form of assessment that has the potential to reduce the effects of a variety of disadvantages that learners may experience and explore what role technologies might play.
