This presentation provides an inside perspective of culturally diverse professionals of color from multiple disciplines in the higher education fields of assessment, measurement, and testing in education based on qualitative study interviews. The findings suggest factors such as bias in assessment tools, professional bias, and cultural bias within disciplines may hinder valid and effective assessment outcomes. The presenter explores issues that facilitate or block valid assessment when working with groups of color. A case study and strong recommendations for teaching and learning will be provided.
