Performance-Based Assessment for 21st-Century Skills

( 1 )

Overview

Performance-based assessments allow classroom teachers an alternative to traditional multiple-choice tests. We often use fill-in-the bubble assessments in education to determine the readiness of students. However, in the 21st-century workplace, these types of tests fail to truly prepare students. How many times in the real world are we called upon to take a multiple-choice test?

Overview

Performance-based assessments allow classroom teachers an alternative to traditional multiple-choice tests. We often use fill-in-the bubble assessments in education to determine the readiness of students. However, in the 21st-century workplace, these types of tests fail to truly prepare students. How many times in the real world are we called upon to take a multiple-choice test? In the real world, we are called upon to prove our merit through performance-based assessments, displaying our 21st-century skills. We should be preparing students for this in the classroom. Performance-Based Assessment for 21st-Century Skills makes the argument that teachers should use performance-based assessments in the classroom. It guides the educator step by step to show how he or she can create performance-based assessments for students, including what they look like, teaching students how to create them, setting the proper classroom environment, and how to evaluate them.

    As a gifted coordinator and past gifted intervention specialist/

    As a gifted coordinator and past gifted intervention specialist/teacher, I love this book! This book has a wealth of knowledge and expertise of defining what performance based assessment is, looks like; explains how to implement ten different types; how to teach students to engage; complete with evaluation rubrics; and making it authentic through creating a community of learners. This book also shares templates to immediately use in creating your own performance based assessments, a mock trial and additional sample lessons. This book would be my “go to” book to get started creating lessons and units involving performance based assessment! I highly recommend this book to all teachers, administrators, gifted intervention specialists, and gifted coordinators. I have shared it numerous times throughout this year alone in professional development training opportunities. I wish I would have had this available to me back when I was in the classroom teaching. Definitely add this book to your professional library!
