" If learners should be able to solve problems, be critical and analytic thinkers, and be able to use the knowledge and skills they have acquired, then educators must use assessment tools that can accurately gauge the success of learners in achieving those goals" (Callahan and Moon, 2001, p 49).
Performance Based Assessments, Project Based Learning, and Rubrics are authentic assessment tools that complement one another and produce active learners that take accountability for their academic performance.
It's what you DO with what you KNOW
Performance Based Assessments
Our PBA Journey
Why Hide It?
use of a rubric, basis for grading products and performances becomes
What is a Rubric?
...the ways in which a teacher applies rubric in the classroom creates a distinction:
scoring rubric =
it is only valuable to the grader (i.e. teacher)
if it is valuable as an assessment and a learning tool for both students and teachers
When Rubrics Do Not Work
When Instructional Rubrics Work
Our Experience With Rubrics
Fault is not with rubric itself, fault lies in the way rubric is used
Using a rubric with sole purpose of a grading tool
Leaving students out of the process
Not showing examples
Research shows that instructional rubrics work best when used before, during, and after instruction:
: co creation of rubric
: given a rubric
: no rubric
I believe that other forms of assessment must be used interchangeably with rubrics to gather an all-encompassing picture of the student as a learner

Defining the Purpose for Learning
What should my students already know?
What can my students do?
What skill or concept am I trying to assess?
" If learners should be able to solve problems, be critical and analytical thinkers, and be able to use the knowledge and skills they have acquired, then educators must use assessment tools that can accurately gauge the success of learners in achieving those goals "
