    Assessment Characteristics
  • 15. What is Measurable?
  • 16. Questions to Ask:
    1) What should students know and be able to do?This list of knowledge and skills becomes your . . .
    STANDARDS
    2) What indicates students have met these standards?To determine if students have met these standards, you design or select relevant . . .
    AUTHENTIC TASKS
    3) What does good performance on this task look like?To determine if students have performed well on the task, you identify and look for characteristics of good performance called . .
    CRITERIA
    4) How well did the students perform?To discriminate among student performance across criteria, you create a . . .
    RUBRIC
    What Needs to be Measured?
  • 17. Authentic Task:  An assignment given to students designed to assess their ability to apply standard-driven knowledge and skills to real-world challenges
    In other words, a task we ask students to perform is considered authentic when
    1) students are asked to construct their own responses rather than select from ones presented and
    2) the task replicates challenges faced in the real world.
    Authentic Assessment
  • 18. Identify your standards for your students.
    For a particular standard or set of standards, develop task(s) your students perform to indicate that they have met these standards.
    Identify the characteristics of good performance on task(s), the criteria, that, if present in your students’ work, indicates that they have performed well on the task(s), i.e., they have met the standards.
    For each criterion, identify two or more levels of performance along which students can perform which sufficiently discriminate among student performance for that criterion. The combination of the criteria and the levels of performance for each criterion are your rubric for that task (assessment).
