|Welina mai (welcome)
to the Indigenous Assessment Toolkit!
This work-in-progress was initiated by the Research & Evaluation
Division of Kamehameha Schools in collaboration
with PREL (Pacific Resources for Education &
Learning) in response to the Nā Lau Lama Indigenous
Assessment Working Group’s recommendation to create
a web-based toolkit of resources on indigenous
assessment. The site profiles a number of assessments
designed from an indigenous perspective. Assessment
profiles are organized by region, age group, and
content areas. The site also contains an extensive
list of print resources and weblinks to guide
further, in-depth exploration of indigenous assessment.
Please select a region
While this toolkit seeks to highlight assessments
across a broad spectrum of locales, age groups,
and content areas, it is by no means exhaustive.
We kindly ask for your kōkua to expand the resources
available and the body of knowledge about indigenous
assessment. You can share the assessments and
tools currently used in your programs and classrooms,
or your favorite resources, by contacting Jared
Nielson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
By making our work available to each other, we
strengthen our individual and collective ability
to assess the impact of our programs and services
in ways that are respectful and responsive to
the participants and communities we serve.
E ala! E alu! E kuilima!
Up! Together! Join Hands!
