In this study, Information Technologies teachers' views and usage cases on performance based assesment methods (PBAMs) are examined. It is aimed to find out which of the PBAMs are used frequently or not used, preference reasons of these methods and opinions about the applicability of them. Study is designed with the phenomenological design which is a qualitative research method. Interviews, observations and document analysis methods are used and triangulation is ensured. The study is carried out with the teachers who thought to reflect the phenomenon (performance based assesment methods used in Information Technologies lesson) clearly. All of the 6 Information Technologies teachers working in 5 different schools of Ankara are graduated from Faculty of Education, Department of Computer Education and Instructional Technologies. As a result of the study, it is found that teachers are not using the PBAMs enough. It is seen that portfolios, projects and performance tasks are used but the other methods are almost never used. Teachers show the lack of time and the difficulty of these methods as the most important two deterrent factors in front of the applicability of PBAMs. Enabling students to take responsibility, process evaluation and performance evaluation are the factors leading to the usage of these PBAMs.
