Google Classroom Tip #10: Create Authentic Assessments
You can design authentic assessments, and utilize Classroom to distribute, grade, and collect student assessments. Why is the ability to create authentic assessments such a potentially powerful tool in an educators tool kit?
Because this type of evaluation demands that students provide answers to real-life situations using critical thinking. Authentic assessment emphasizes problem-solving by integrating content students have studied. Oral presentations are an example of this type of assessment. Other activities related to authentic assessment include role-playing, debating, journal writing, or portfolios. Portfolios document the history and process of learning; they are generally used as springboards for feedback.
As you can see using Classroom to leverage the power of authentic assessments can be a game changer.
