Authentic Assessment

Authentic Assessment

Authentic Assessment is a half course that will introduce you to the principles and practice of this approach to assessment of student learning. Authentic assessment is an approach that takes into account the contexts in which that learning will actually be used once students leave the university. It is an attempt to assess what students actually know, value, and can do in a way that is well-integrated into the entire learning environment of a course. In this course you will learn how to align assessment with intended learning outcomes, how to design meaningful assessment measures that motivate students and even design assessments that help students learn as they are being assessed.

At this time, there are no upcoming events in "Authentic Assessment".
