Powell, Janet Carlson
Middle School Journal, v25 n2 p36-42 Nov 1993
Using authentic assessment means making assessment practices match instructional practices. Biological Sciences Curriculum Study divides assessment into three categories: informal, formative, and summative. Specific strategies are provided for using each assessment type. Teachers are assessing authentically when evaluation becomes an ongoing classroom process that involves students fully and uses various strategies and tools. (MLH)
