Mitigate the potential of implicit bias in grading and evaluation

Use rubrics to ensure equity

Ensuring equity in recruiting, hiring, and evaluation practices helps to create and sustain a diverse and inclusive campus environment. Using a rubric to assess candidates allows for an unbiased and consistent evaluation of candidates and employees. While creating a rubric may be labor intensive at the beginning of the process, it helps ensure that all applicants and employees are evaluated against the same criteria, reducing the chance that implicit biases and inequitable practices are influencing personnel decisions (James et al., 2022).
