performance assessment
Performance Assessment
  • An assessment in which the teacher observes and makes a judgement about a student’s demonstration of a skill or competency in creating a product.
  • Similar terms include:
  • authentic assessment.
  • alternative assessment.
  • portfolio assessment
performance assessment techniques
Performance Assessment Techniques
  • Individual Projects.
  • Group Projects.
  • Interviews and Oral Presentations.
  • Constructed Response Questions.
  • Essays.
  • Experiments.
  • Demonstrations.
performance assessment techniques individual projects
Performance Assessment TechniquesIndividual Projects
  • Comprehensive demonstrations of skills or knowledge.
  • Usually require student initiative and creativity.
  • Trained judges (often teachers) score projects against predetermined standards of quality.
  • Science fair projects areexamples.
performance assessment techniques group projects
Performance Assessment TechniquesGroup Projects
  • Similar to individual projects.
  • A number of students work cooperatively on a complex problem.
  • Trained judges (often teachers) score projects against predetermined standards of quality.
performance assessment techniques interviews oral presentations
Performance Assessment TechniquesInterviews/Oral Presentations
  • Allow verbalization of knowledge.
  • Interviews are particularly effective with younger children.
  • Examples of usage include foreign language assessment, and
  • Solutions to math or science problems.
performance assessment techniques experiments
Performance Assessment TechniquesExperiments
  • Primarily used for assessing learning in science.
  • Several national organizations (e.g., AAAS, NSTA, NSF) advocate the use of experiments in classroom assessment of science concepts.
  • Again, trained judges (often teachers) score projects against predetermined standards of quality
performance assessment techniques demonstrations
Performance Assessment TechniquesDemonstrations
  • Give students the opportunity to show their mastery of subject-area content and procedures.
  • In physics, for example, use pulleys, gears, and inclined planes to move objects.
performance assessment techniques portfolios
Performance Assessment TechniquesPortfolios
  • Collections of student work provide a portrait of individual performance over time.
  • Typically, students are asked to evaluate the work they select for inclusion.
performance assessment advantages and limitations
Advantages

Assessment of complex, higher-order learning targets.

Students actively engaged in learning while being assessed.

Forces teachers to use multiple criteria.

Limitations

Weaker reliability.

Limited sampling of learning targets.

Time-consuming.

Not good for assessing knowledge learning targets.

Performance Assessment:Advantages and Limitations
performance assessment most serious limitation
Performance Assessment:Most Serious Limitation

Limited Generalizability

  • Students respond to fewer tasks.
  • Makes it difficult to draw inferences about general abilities.
    • If the performance is successful can we infer that the student would do well on other tasks?
    • If performance is unsuccessful can we infer that the student would do poorly on other tasks?
performance assessments three essential components
Performance Assessments:Three essential components
  • Popham contends, and most experts agree, that a performance assessment should contain the following three components:
    • Multiple criteria.
    • Pre-specified quality standards.
    • Judgmental appraisal.
  • In addition, performance assessments can be either simulated or authentic.
performance assessment components popham
Performance Assessment:Components (Popham)
  • Identify the purpose for the assessment.
  • Identify the learning target.
  • Identify activities that illustrate acquisition of the targeted capability.
  • Identify the types of evidence needed to infer skill acquisition.
  • Identify the standards to be used.
  • Place all this in the rubric.
performance assessment evaluating the rubric
Performance Assessment:Evaluating the Rubric
  • Does it identify critical components of the learning target?
  • Does it identify “observable” behaviors or outcomes?
  • Is it appropriate for the students being assessed?
  • Does it apply across contexts that call for similar behaviors?
  • Does it specify levels of accomplishment?
vehicles for recording evidence of skill acquisition
Vehicles for RecordingEvidence of Skill Acquisition
  • Rating Scales
    • Assess the degree or adequacy of attainment of the learning target.
  • Checklists
    • Assess presence or absence of skill acquisition.
  • Anecdotal Records
    • Assess atypical or unusual behaviors on selected children for future reference.
portfolios advantages and limitations
Advantages

Authenticity.

Show growth.

Empower students.

Foster communication.

Great instruc-tional tool.

Limitations

Many uses of classroom assessment are not served well with portfolios.

Time consuming.

Psychometric problems:

with validity.

with reliability.

Portfolios:Advantages and Limitations
portfolio assessment
Portfolio Assessment

Assessment or instruction aid?

Types of portfolios:

Purposeful portfolios.

Document progress.

Showcase accomplishments.

Evaluate student status.

Work-sample portfolios ( Document typical performance).

Appraising portfolios (Scored w/ a rubric).
