Technology-Based Classroom Assessments: Alternatives to Testing
Salend, Spencer J.
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v41 n6 p49-58 Jul-Aug 2009
Although many teachers are using new technologies to differentiate instruction and administer tests, educators are also employing a range of technology-based resources and strategies to implement a variety of classroom assessments as alternatives to standardized and teacher-made testing. Technology-based classroom assessments focus on the use of technology by teachers and students to create learning products, promote their technology skills, and examine students' strengths and challenges and the outcomes of daily classroom instructional and social activities. Recognizing that technology is transforming many aspects of teaching and learning, and offering innovative and motivating ways to document student learning that are adaptable to a range of students, this article provides educators with guidelines, strategies, and resources for implementing technology-based classroom assessments.
