Hansen, J. Merrell
Kappa Delta Pi Record, v34 n4 p124-28 Sum 1998
Performance-based (authentic) assessments include genuine, useful, applicable, practice-based, transferable, and demonstrable items. They include skills, knowledge, and attitudes that can be carried beyond the classroom. This paper discusses the importance of learning by doing, explains how to use performance-based assessments, and emphasizes the need to include performance-based learning and authentic assessments in any significant educational reform.
