Performance-Based Assessment in Middle School Science.
Jones, M. Gail
Middle School Journal, v25 n4 p35-38 Mar 1994
Students find performance-based assessment exciting because the tasks are intriguing and mirror real-life experiences. As this vignette of a middle school interdisciplinary coastal ecology unit shows, hands-on, teacher-made assessments can effectively evaluate students' mastery of process skills such as observing, classifying, inferring, predicting, measuring, communicating, experimenting, and interpreting data. Guidelines are provided. (MLH)
