Authentic Assessment Rubric, by Joel R. Montgomery, U of Phoenix
Argues that while traditional assessment approaches using multiple choice tests do not accurately measure knowledge, authentic assessment does: it opens up a collaborative approach to assessment that enables teachers and students to interact in the teaching/learning process. He goes to say that frequently rubrics for authentic assessments are provided to support meaningful self-assessment as well as criterion-referenced assessment by teachers. Rubrics assist the student to achieve appropriate performance targets. They can also support continuous assessment of student progress and serve as a collaborative tool to be used for dialogue between students, peers, teachers, administrators and parents.
