Authentic Assessment Toolbox

By Jon Mueller
A how-to text on creating authentic tasks, rubrics and standards for measuring and improving student learning. An authentic assessment usually includes a task for students to perform and a rubric by which their performance on the task will be evaluated. On this site, there are definitions, examples, a glossary, and comparisons of authentic and traditional assessments.

"I use My eCoach for one of my main sources of communication for my students and families. Pinellas County, FL is required to use Moodle. This is a tool that is primarily meant for the students as a teaching tool, and a way to gather grades. Ultimately, these results are intended to transfer into our on-line grading system (Portal). I have taken the on-line training provided to do this; however, I do not have the time in the day or the confidence to try this without having a core group of teachers to reflect and share results with.

At this point, the combination of Moodle and Portal are so new that there is a minimal amount of teachers that can & do use Moodle/Portal effectively. My eCoach provides this support system for me. I am confident that I can inquire with anyone on my team, or Barbara Bray & I know I will get the support I need."
