Chapter 6 examines the purpose of authentic assessment, as well as the pros and cons of using authentic assessments with children. Imagine that your program, school, or center has adopted performance assessment to measure a child?s growth. Your supervisor has asked you to create a letter for families explaining performance assessment. In your letter, you must address the following:
- At least two reasons why using performance assessment with children is a reliable method of measuring growth.
- At least two typical concerns associated with performance assessment and how you will address those concerns.
- At least two different performance assessments that you will use in the classroom and why you will use these assessments.
Post your letter to the discussion forum.
Carefully review the Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your discussion.
