One response to “What is authentic assessment?”

    I would add that the frameworks for more authentic assessment are already in place in RI — including in the graduation requirements, although the infrastructure is probably weaker than it was five or ten years ago.  The problem is that the current application of “multiple measures” means this AND that.  The problem is that the NECAP trumps the other assessments.  
    We could be discussing a system where you needed a certain number of credits OR a passing NECAP score, AND a portfolio assessment OR senior project, and I’m not sure why we aren’t.
