Authentic Assessment

0 (0votes)

According to Grant Wiggins (1998), an assignment is authentic if it

  • is realistic
  • requires judgment and innovation
  • asks the student to “do” the subject
  • replicates or simulates the contexts in which adults are “tested” in the workplace or in civic or personal life
  • assesses the student’s ability to efficiently and effectively use a repertoire of knowledge and skills to negotiate a complex task
  • allows appropriate opportunities to rehearse, practice, consult resources, and get feedback on and refine performances and products
