What is assessment?

What do you think of the statement ‘we should be assessing more not less’ ? (Wiggins)


Standardised testing vs authentic assessment

Standardised Testing vs Authentic Assessment

  • Reduces children’s rich and complex lives to a collection of scores, percentiles and grades

  • Creates stresses that negatively affect a child’s performance

  • Pressures teachers to narrow their curriculum to only what is tested on the exam

  • Gives the teacher a felt sense of the child’s unique experience as a learner

  • Provides interesting, active, lively and exciting experiences

  • Allows teachers to develop meaningful curricula and assess within the context of that program

“Performances and product requirements that are faithful to real world demands, opportunities and constraints, testing students on their ability to do the subject and transfer learning effectively” (2)
