27 Characteristics Of Authentic Assessment - TeachThought

What is “authentic assessment”?

Almost 25 years ago, I wrote a widely-read and discussed paper that was entitled: “A True Test: Toward More Authentic and Equitable Assessment” that was published in the Phi Delta Kappan. I believe the phrase was my coining, made when I worked with Ted Sizer at the Coalition of Essential Schools, as a way of describing “true” tests as opposed to merely academic and unrealistic school tests. I first used the phrase in print in an article for Educational Leadership entitled “Teaching to the (Authentic) Test” in the April 1989 issue.

(My colleague from the Advisory Board of the Coalition of Essential Schools, Fred Newmann, was the first to use the phrase in a book, a pamphlet for NASSP in 1988 entitled Beyond standardized testing: Assessing authentic academic achievement in secondary schools. His work in the Chicago public schools provided significant findings about the power of working this way.)

Grant Wiggins' article is dated, but useful. Authentic assessment includes authentic problems to be solved given a context. It does not mean students only do projects and do authentic assessment tasks. Good teachers understand that they lay the ground work for the projects and assessment.

Or put in another way: don't try to boil the ocean. Increment this task over time. Start small, be humble, build the base, add the bricks.

Let’s face it, Higher Education accreditation is odd. You get a two numbers with a dot between them. What use is that? We need far more innovation on what we assess, when we assess and how we assess. MOOCs are starting to give us real answers.

"Although using social networks in your curriculum definitely has the cool factor, you need to assess your technology integration strategies to make sure you are meeting your goals. In addition, administrators will be more likely to be on board with social networks in the classroom if you can show proof that it is a successful strategy."
