Assessing the Practices of Public Scholarship (APPS)

 

Assessing the Practices of Public Scholarship (APPS) – a research group of Imagining America – is a collective of practitioner-scholar-artists, who strive to boldly change the conversation around the assessment and evaluation of community engagement, embracing democratic values, equity, and participatory ways of knowing. Together, APPS: • Collects, adapts, creates, and disseminate frameworks and tools that enable democratically engaged approaches to assessment at varying scales and in diverse contexts. • Identifies and shares case studies, stories, and critical reflections that illuminate democratically engaged assessment values, approaches, and uses. • Engages IA members and broader communities of assessment practice in demonstration projects related to DEA. • Co-creates original scholarship and analysis that synthesizes extant and emergent knowledge from this initiative for a wider audience. • Curates and develops resources and facilitate learning opportunities for members through IA’s convenings, publications, and other forums.
