Authentic based assessment

  1. 1. Authentic-based Assessment Carlo Magno, PhD
  2. 2. Answer the following Questions  What makes tasks authentic?  Give an example of tasks that are authentic.  How will you assess this task?
  3. 3. Authentic tasks (Wiggins, 1998)  Six Standards for Judging the Degree of Authenticity  A. Is realistic – The task replicates the ways in which a person’s knoweldge and abilities are tested in real world situations.  B. Requires judgment and innovation – The student has to use knowledge and skills to solve unstructured problems, and solution involves more than following a set of rules.
  4. 4. Authentic tasks (Wiggins, 1998)  C. Asks the students to do the subject – the student has to carry out exploration and work within the discipline of the subject area, rather than restating what is already known.  D. Replicates or simulates the contents in which adults are tested in the workplace, in civic life, and personal life – Contexts involve specific situations that have particular constraints , purposes, and audiences. Students need to experience what it is like to do tasks in the workplace or real life context.
  5. 5. Authentic tasks (Wiggins, 1998)  E. Assesses the student’s ability to efficiently and effectively use a repertoire of knowledge and skill to negotiate a complex task – Students should be required to integrate all knowledge and skills needed, rather than demonstrate competence of isolated knowledge and skills.
  6. 6. Authentic tasks (Wiggins, 1998)  F. Allows appropriate opportunities to rehearse, practice, consult resources, and get feedback on and refine performances and products – Rather than rely on secure tests as an audit of performance, learning should be focused through cycles of performance-feedback-revision- performance, on the production of known high quality products and standards, and learning in context.
  7. 7. Authentic tasks (Newmann, 1992)  Construction of meaning (use of reasoning and higher-order thinking skills)  Organization of information  Consideration of alternatives  Disciplined Inquiry (thinking like “experts” searching for in-depth understanding)  Disciplinary content  Disciplinary process  Elaborated written communication
  8. 8. Authentic tasks (Newmann, 1992)  Value beyond school (aesthetic, utilitarian, or personal value apart form documenting the competence of the learner)  Problem connected to the world  Audience beyond the school
  9. 9. Definition  Authentic tasks “demand construction of knowledge through disciplined inquiry and result in discourse, products, and performance that have value or meaning beyond success in school.
  10. 10. Definition  Authentic tasks “demand construction of knowledge through disciplined inquiry and result in discourse, products, and performance that have value or meaning beyond success in school.
