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.
