From: Dee Bedwell To: Teacher2Teacher Public Discussion Date: 2012052219:37:04 Subject: Assessment defined Authentic Assessment  An assessment in which the student is expected to create or design to show knowledge of a skill. Alternative Assessment  Any assessment which gives a student the opportunity to show what they know in a variety of modalities. Commonly associated with the multiple intelligence theory. Performance Assessment/Event  An assessment which requires the student to perform a task to show knowledge and explain their thought process for solving. All of these assessments are closely related in that they require a student to "produce" as they show what they know. The performance event is thorough in that it requires the student to go full circle in not only producing an answer, but evaluate how they got to their answer and synthesise as they "regurgitate" the information in an explaination.
