Designing Scoring Tools for Authentic & Alternative Assessments: A Common Sense Method.
Francis, Raymond; Hord, Shirley
The development of a scoring tool to be used with alternative and authentic assessment strategies is discussed, describing the parts of such a tool and the development process. The design is based on the Innovation Configuration (IC) process of the Concerns-Based Adoption Model. To begin, components of the test task are identified. Variations that accomplish the various components are then determined. A quality line is established that sets least desirable variations on the left side of the tool and most desirable variations on the right side. The quality line may be percentages of student accomplishment, or it may be developed from judgment of student work or grade level performance. An IC-rubric (IC-R) is developed from combinations of components and variations for any performance task. Components are listed on the y-axis and variations from least to most desirable (quality line) on the x-axis. An activity for developing and applying an IC-R is included. (Contains six inserts and four references.) (SLD)
