An important step in the assessment development process is the item review stage often referred to as Bias/Fairness and Sensitivity Review. This paper challenges the field to re-envision the purpose and outcomes of the bias and sensitivity review process by (a) identifying common themes and/or recommendations found in bias and sensitivity guidelines that, even if unintentionally, center whiteness and/or the paradigm of white dominant culture; and (b) recommending a set of bias and sensitivity principles that promote an antiracist approach to assessment design, specifically item review.
