basic elements of authentic assessment
Basic Elements of Authentic Assessment
  • Requires students to develop responses rather than select from predetermined options
  • Elicits higher order thinking in addition to basic skills
  • Directly evaluates holistic projects
  • Synthesizes with classroom instruction
  • Uses samples of student work (portfolios) collected over an extended time period
  • Stems from clear criteria made known to students (rubrics)
  • Allows for the possibility of multiple human judgments
  • Relates more closely to classroom learning
  • Teaches students to evaluate their own work

What does Authentic Assessment look like?

An authentic assessment usually includes a task for students to perform and a rubric by which their performance on the task will be evaluated.

how do you create authentic assessments
How do you create Authentic Assessments?
  • Identify your standards for your students.
  • For a particular standard or set of standards, develop a task your students could perform that would indicate that they have met these standards.
  • Identify the characteristics of good performance on that task, the criteria, that, if present in your students’ work, will indicate that they have performed well on the task and have met the standards.
  • For each criterion, identify two or more levels of performance along which students can perform which will sufficiently discriminate among student performance for that criterion. The combination of the criteria and the levels of performance for each criterion will be your rubric for that task (assessment).
