Authentic
Assessment

principles
Constructivism is a theory about how we learn.
It focuses on the learner having an in-depth
understanding of ideas and concepts by..

constructing
creating
inventing (or, even re-inventing) and
developing
their own knowledge.

As a teacher this means you


enable your learners to
ask questions
interpret information
analyze information or events
critique information or events
discriminate
develop

(or alter)

meanings, concepts, and ideas

apply their learning


integrate new experiences with their prior knowledge

regular part of teaching and learning that
shapes the learning process

Assessment of learning (summative) is for


accountability purposes for reporting

integrative Assessment task:


When we buy products we want to be sure that they
have been thoroughly tested so they work well.
1.

In groups of 5 demonstrate your understanding of


the concept of a fair test by investigating which
ball bounces the best.

2. Prepare a diagram that justifies your conclusion.


3. Your grade will be based on items one and two.

Some Key ideas about assessment tools

Assessment tools need to be developed and trialed before the


assessment period

Tools need to focus on the learning objectives

Tools should be easy to use with every student

Tools need to match the assessment task

Tools should be developed/shared with the learner

???? (add your ideas )

For example

A rubric
-

Is a guideline for distinguishing


between performances, or
products, of differing qualities;

Should be based on stated


performance standards;

Should indicate a scaled,


descriptive levels of progress
towards the desired result;
